If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its info in a database and the bigger the Internet site gets, the more data it collects. As an example, if you launch an electronic store, the size of the database that the e-commerce script uses will increase whenever you add more items. The exact same applies for a forum script - the more users that register and the more opinions they submit, the bigger the database. If your sites become popular or you simply want to include more content, this may turn into a problem if your hosting account has limited database storage area. What the particular effect of hitting the limit will be depends on the script - the website can work adequately, but you may not be able to include any new information; the site could be viewed with errors; or, in the worst scenario, the whole site could simply go offline.
