If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its info within a database and the more substantial the site becomes, the more data it collects. For instance, if you launch an Internet based store, the size of the database that the e-commerce script uses shall increase whenever you add more items. The same applies for a forum script - the more users that register and the more comments they post, the more substantial the database. If your websites gain popularity or you would like to include more content, this could become a problem if your website hosting account has limited database space. The exact effect of hitting the limit shall be depends on the script - the site can work properly, but you may not be able to include any new info; the site could be viewed with errors; or, in the worst case scenario, the whole site may simply go offline.
