If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its data within a database and the bigger the website becomes, the more information it gathers. For instance, if you launch an online store, the size of the database that the e-commerce script uses will increase whenever you add more goods. The same applies for a forum script - the more users which register and the more comments they publish, the bigger the database. If your Internet sites become more popular or you just want to add more content, this may develop into a problem if your hosting account has limited database storage area. The exact effect of reaching the limit will be depends on the script - the website may perform adequately, but you may not be able to add any new information; the site could be shown with errors; or, in the worst case scenario, your entire website might go offline.
