If you use a script-driven platform for your website, it stores its information within a database and the bigger the Internet site gets, the more info it stores. For example, if you start an online store, the size of the database that the e-commerce script uses shall increase as you add more goods. The exact same applies for a forum script - the more users that register and the more responses they post, the bigger the database. If your sites become more popular or you simply want to add more content, this can become a problem if your website hosting account has limited database space. What the particular effect of hitting the limit will be depends on the script - the website may work correctly, but you may not be able to include any new content; the site may be viewed with errors; or, in the most severe scenario, your entire internet site might go offline.
