If you use a script-driven platform for your Internet site, it stores its data in a database and the larger the Internet site gets, the more info it collects. For example, if you launch a web store, the size of the database the e-commerce script uses shall increase as you add more products. The exact same applies for a forum script - the more users which register and the more comments they submit, the more substantial the database. If your websites become popular or you simply want to add more content, this can become a problem in the event that your web hosting account has limited database storage area. What the particular effect of hitting the limit will be depends on the script - the website can perform adequately, but you may not be able to include any new information; the website may be viewed with errors; or, in the worst case scenario, the whole internet site may simply go offline.
