If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its info within a database and the larger the Internet site gets, the more information it gathers. For instance, if you launch an e-store, the size of the database which the e-commerce script employs will increase as you add more goods. The same applies for a forum script - the more users that register and the more opinions they publish, the more substantial the database. If your websites become more popular or you just want to include more content, this can become a problem if your Internet hosting account has limited database space for storage. The specific effect of geting to the limit will be depends on the script - the Internet site could function properly, but you may not be able to add any new content; the site can be shown with errors; or, in the worst case scenario, the whole website may simply go offline.
