If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its info in a database and the larger the website gets, the more information it collects. For example, if you start a web store, the size of the database the e-commerce script employs will increase as you add more items. Exactly the same is valid for a forum script - the more users which register and the more comments they publish, the larger the database. If your Internet sites become more popular or you would like to include more content, this may be a problem in case that your hosting account has limited database space. The particular effect of hitting the limit shall be depends on the script - the website could function properly, but you may not be able to add any new info; the site may be viewed with errors; or, in the worst scenario, your whole internet site could simply go offline.
