If you use a script-driven platform for your website, it stores its info within a database and the bigger the site becomes, the more data it collects. For example, if you start an Internet store, the size of the database the e-commerce script uses shall increase as you add more goods. The same applies for a forum script - the more users which register and the more comments they submit, the more substantial the database. If your Internet sites become popular or you would like to add more content, this can become a problem in case that your website hosting account has limited database space for storage. The exact effect of hitting the limit shall be depends on the script - the site can work correctly, but you may not be able to add any new information; the website could be displayed with errors; or, in the worst case scenario, your whole internet site might go offline.
