If you use a script-driven platform for your Internet site, it stores its info in a database and the more substantial the website becomes, the more data it collects. For instance, if you launch an Internet store, the size of the database which the e-commerce script uses will increase whenever you add more goods. Exactly the same is valid for a forum script - the more users that register and the more responses they submit, the larger the database. If your sites gain popularity or you just want to include more content, this may be a problem in case that your website hosting account has limited database space for storage. The specific effect of hitting the limit will be depends on the script - the site can function correctly, but you may not be able to add any new information; the website can be viewed with errors; or, in the worst case scenario, the entire site may simply go offline.
