If you use a script-driven platform for your website, it stores its information within a database and the more substantial the website becomes, the more information it collects. For example, if you launch an e-store, the size of the database which the e-commerce script uses will increase whenever you add more products. Exactly the same applies for a forum script - the more users that register and the more opinions they publish, the larger the database. If your websites become more popular or you would like to add more content, this could be a problem in the event that your Internet hosting account has limited database storage area. What the particular effect of hitting the limit will be depends on the script - the website may function correctly, but you may not be able to add any new content; the site can be shown with errors; or, in the worst case scenario, the entire site might go offline.
