If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its information inside a database and the more substantial the website gets, the more info it gathers. As an illustration, if you launch a web-based store, the size of the database which the e-commerce script uses shall increase when you add more products. Exactly the same applies for a forum script - the more users that register and the more responses they submit, the more substantial the database. If your sites become more popular or you would like to add more content, this may become a problem in the event that your web hosting account has limited database space for storage. What the exact effect of reaching the limit shall be depends on the script - the website may perform adequately, but you may not be able to include any new content; the site can be displayed with errors; or, in the worst scenario, your whole website could simply go offline.
