If you use a script-driven platform for your Internet site, it stores its info in a database and the bigger the website becomes, the more data it collects. As an illustration, if you start a web-based store, the size of the database which the e-commerce script uses will increase as you add more items. The same applies for a forum script - the more users that register and the more comments they publish, the bigger the database. If your sites gain popularity or you would like to add more content, this could develop into a problem in case that your Internet hosting account has limited database storage space. The specific effect of reaching the limit shall be depends on the script - the site could perform correctly, but you may not be able to add any new info; the internet site can be displayed with errors; or, in the worst scenario, the entire internet site may simply go offline.
