If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its info inside a database and the larger the Internet site becomes, the more info it collects. For example, if you launch an Internet store, the size of the database the e-commerce script employs will increase when you add more products. The same is valid for a forum script - the more users that register and the more opinions they publish, the bigger the database. If your sites gain popularity or you just want to add more content, this might be a problem if your hosting account has limited database storage area. The exact effect of hitting the limit will be depends on the script - the Internet site can work adequately, but you may not be able to add any new info; the website could be viewed with errors; or, in the worst case scenario, the entire site may simply go offline.
