If you use a script-driven platform for your Internet site, it stores its data in a database and the more substantial the Internet site becomes, the more information it stores. As an illustration, if you start an e-store, the size of the database the e-commerce script employs will increase as you add more goods. Exactly the same is valid for a forum script - the more users that register and the more responses they submit, the larger the database. If your Internet sites become popular or you would like to include more content, this might turn into a problem in case that your Internet hosting account has limited database space for storage. What the specific effect of reaching the limit will be depends on the script - the site can function correctly, but you may not be able to add any new info; the website can be viewed with errors; or, in the worst case scenario, the whole website could simply go offline.
