If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its data inside a database and the more substantial the website gets, the more data it collects. As an illustration, if you start an Internet based store, the size of the database that the e-commerce script employs shall increase any time you add more goods. The exact same is valid for a forum script - the more users which register and the more responses they submit, the more substantial the database. If your Internet sites become popular or you just want to include more content, this could become a problem in the event that your web hosting account has limited database storage area. What the particular effect of reaching the limit will be depends on the script - the Internet site can function properly, but you may not be able to include any new content; the website may be displayed with errors; or, in the worst case scenario, your whole website could simply go offline.
