If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its data in a database and the larger the site gets, the more info it stores. As an illustration, if you start an Internet based store, the size of the database that the e-commerce script uses will increase any time you add more goods. Exactly the same is valid for a forum script - the more users that register and the more responses they publish, the more substantial the database. If your websites become popular or you just want to add more content, this can develop into a problem in case that your web hosting account has limited database space for storage. What the particular effect of hitting the limit shall be depends on the script - the website may work properly, but you may not be able to include any new content; the site can be shown with errors; or, in the worst case scenario, the whole site might go offline.
