If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its information within a database and the bigger the site gets, the more data it collects. For example, if you start an Internet store, the size of the database the e-commerce script uses shall increase whenever you add more products. The exact same is valid for a forum script - the more users which register and the more comments they publish, the larger the database. If your websites become popular or you just want to include more content, this can be a problem in the event that your web hosting account has limited database space for storage. What the particular effect of reaching the limit shall be depends on the script - the site can work properly, but you may not be able to add any new information; the website may be displayed with errors; or, in the most severe scenario, your whole site could simply go offline.
