If you use a script-driven platform for your website, it stores its information within a database and the more substantial the website gets, the more information it collects. For instance, if you start a web-based store, the size of the database the e-commerce script uses will increase any time you add more items. Exactly the same applies for a forum script - the more users which register and the more responses they publish, the more substantial the database. If your websites become more popular or you simply want to include more content, this can develop into a problem in the event that your hosting account has limited database storage space. What the particular effect of hitting the limit will be depends on the script - the website may work adequately, but you may not be able to include any new information; the website could be shown with errors; or, in the most severe scenario, the whole site could simply go offline.
