If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its info inside a database and the more substantial the website becomes, the more information it collects. As an illustration, if you start an Internet store, the size of the database which the e-commerce script employs will increase when you add more items. Exactly the same is valid for a forum script - the more users which register and the more opinions they post, the larger the database. If your sites become more popular or you would like to include more content, this might be a problem in case that your web hosting account has limited database space for storage. The specific effect of geting to the limit shall be depends on the script - the site may perform properly, but you may not be able to add any new content; the site could be displayed with errors; or, in the most severe scenario, the entire site might go offline.
