If you use a script-driven platform for your Internet site, it stores its information within a database and the larger the Internet site gets, the more information it gathers. For example, if you start a web store, the size of the database the e-commerce script employs will increase whenever you add more products. The exact same applies for a forum script - the more users that register and the more comments they submit, the more substantial the database. If your websites gain popularity or you simply want to include more content, this might develop into a problem if your hosting account has limited database space. What the particular effect of hitting the limit shall be depends on the script - the website could function correctly, but you may not be able to include any new information; the website could be viewed with errors; or, in the most severe scenario, your whole internet site might go offline.
