If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its information in a database and the more substantial the site gets, the more information it stores. As an illustration, if you launch an Internet store, the size of the database which the e-commerce script employs will increase as you add more goods. The exact same is valid 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 more popular or you simply want to include more content, this can turn into a problem in the event that your hosting account has limited database storage area. What the particular effect of geting to the limit shall be depends on the script - the site may function adequately, but you may not be able to include any new information; the website could be shown with errors; or, in the worst scenario, the whole site could simply go offline.
