If you use a script-driven platform for your Internet site, it stores its info within a database and the bigger the Internet site becomes, the more data it stores. As an example, if you launch an e-store, the size of the database the e-commerce script employs will increase as you add more goods. The exact same applies for a forum script - the more users which register and the more responses they publish, the larger the database. If your sites become popular or you simply want to add more content, this could develop into a problem if your web hosting account has limited database storage space. What the exact effect of reaching the limit will be depends on the script - the website may work properly, but you may not be able to add any new info; the internet site could be displayed with errors; or, in the worst scenario, the entire internet site might go offline.
