If you use a script-driven platform for your Internet site, it stores its information in a database and the bigger the website becomes, the more data it stores. For instance, if you start an online store, the size of the database that the e-commerce script uses will increase as you add more goods. The exact same applies for a forum script - the more users which register and the more opinions they publish, the more substantial the database. If your sites gain popularity or you would like to include more content, this can be a problem in the event that your web hosting account has limited database space for storage. What the exact effect of hitting the limit will be depends on the script - the site can perform properly, but you may not be able to add any new content; the site can be viewed with errors; or, in the most severe scenario, the whole website might go offline.
