If you use a script-driven platform for your website, it stores its info in a database and the bigger the site gets, the more info it gathers. For instance, if you launch an electronic store, the size of the database which the e-commerce script employs will increase whenever you add more goods. Exactly the same is valid for a forum script - the more users which register and the more responses they publish, the bigger the database. If your sites become more popular or you simply want to add more content, this could become a problem in the event that your hosting account has limited database storage space. The exact effect of reaching the limit will be depends on the script - the site may work correctly, but you may not be able to add any new content; the website may be shown with errors; or, in the worst scenario, the entire site may simply go offline.
