If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its info inside a database and the larger the site becomes, the more info it stores. For example, if you launch a web store, the size of the database which the e-commerce script employs shall increase any time you add more items. The exact same is valid for a forum script - the more users which register and the more responses they post, the larger the database. If your websites become popular or you just want to add more content, this may become a problem in the event that your hosting account has limited database space. The specific effect of reaching the limit shall be depends on the script - the site could function correctly, but you may not be able to include any new information; the site can be shown with errors; or, in the worst scenario, your whole site could simply go offline.
