If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its information within a database and the larger the site becomes, the more information it collects. For instance, if you start an Internet based store, the size of the database the e-commerce script uses will increase whenever you add more goods. Exactly the same is valid for a forum script - the more users that register and the more opinions they submit, the bigger the database. If your sites gain popularity or you just want to add more content, this could turn into a problem in case 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 website can work adequately, but you may not be able to add any new info; the website may be displayed with errors; or, in the worst scenario, your whole website might go offline.
