If you use a script-driven platform for your Internet site, it stores its info inside a database and the more substantial the Internet site gets, the more info it collects. For instance, if you start an e-store, the size of the database that the e-commerce script employs will increase whenever you add more items. The same is valid for a forum script - the more users that register and the more responses they post, the more substantial the database. If your sites become more popular or you would like to include more content, this might develop into a problem in case that your hosting account has limited database storage area. What the specific effect of hitting the limit shall be depends on the script - the site could perform properly, but you may not be able to add any new info; the internet site can be viewed with errors; or, in the worst scenario, your entire website might go offline.
