If you use a script-driven platform for your Internet site, it stores its information within a database and the more substantial the site becomes, the more info it collects. As an example, if you start an Internet based store, the size of the database the e-commerce script employs shall increase when you add more products. The same is valid for a forum script - the more users which register and the more comments they publish, the bigger the database. If your websites become more popular or you just want to add more content, this may turn into a problem in case that your hosting account has limited database storage space. What the specific effect of reaching the limit will be depends on the script - the Internet site can perform correctly, but you may not be able to add any new information; the website may be shown with errors; or, in the most severe scenario, the entire website might go offline.
