If you use a script-driven platform for your website, it stores its information in a database and the bigger the site becomes, the more data it gathers. As an example, if you start a web-based store, the size of the database the e-commerce script uses shall increase when you add more products. The exact same applies for a forum script - the more users that register and the more opinions they submit, the larger the database. If your sites become popular or you just want to include more content, this might turn into a problem in case that your web hosting account has limited database space. What the particular effect of reaching the limit will be depends on the script - the website could function correctly, but you may not be able to include any new info; the website can be shown with errors; or, in the most severe scenario, your whole website might go offline.
