If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its information in a database and the more substantial the site becomes, the more data it stores. As an example, if you start an Internet store, the size of the database that the e-commerce script uses shall increase when you add more products. The same applies for a forum script - the more users that register and the more responses they publish, the larger the database. If your websites gain popularity or you would like to add more content, this can be a problem in the event that your website hosting account has limited database space for storage. What the particular effect of geting to the limit will be depends on the script - the website may work correctly, but you may not be able to add any new info; the website could be displayed with errors; or, in the most severe scenario, the whole site may simply go offline.
