If you use a script-driven platform for your Internet site, it stores its data within a database and the larger the website becomes, the more info it collects. As an example, if you launch a web-based store, the size of the database the e-commerce script uses will increase any time you add more products. Exactly the same is valid for a forum script - the more users that register and the more opinions they publish, the bigger the database. If your sites gain popularity or you would like to include more content, this may develop into a problem if your web hosting account has limited database storage space. The particular effect of hitting the limit will be depends on the script - the website can perform correctly, but you may not be able to include any new content; the website can be shown with errors; or, in the worst scenario, the entire site could simply go offline.
