If you use a script-driven platform for your Internet site, it stores its data in a database and the bigger the Internet site becomes, the more information it stores. For instance, if you start an online store, the size of the database the e-commerce script employs will increase when you add more items. Exactly the same applies for a forum script - the more users that register and the more comments they publish, the bigger the database. If your sites gain popularity or you would like to include more content, this might become a problem if your website hosting account has limited database storage space. What the specific effect of reaching the limit will be depends on the script - the Internet site could function properly, but you may not be able to add any new information; the internet site can be displayed with errors; or, in the most severe scenario, your entire site might go offline.
