If you use a script-driven platform for your Internet site, it stores its information in a database and the more substantial the website becomes, the more information it collects. As an illustration, if you start an online store, the size of the database the e-commerce script uses will increase any time you add more products. Exactly the same is valid for a forum script - the more users which register and the more responses they post, the bigger the database. If your sites become more popular or you would like to include more content, this could turn into a problem if your website hosting account has limited database storage area. What the particular effect of geting to the limit shall be depends on the script - the Internet site can perform adequately, but you may not be able to add any new content; the internet site could be viewed with errors; or, in the worst scenario, your whole site may simply go offline.
