If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its information in a database and the more substantial the Internet site gets, the more information it gathers. For instance, if you start an e-store, the size of the database which 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 responses they publish, the more substantial the database. If your Internet sites become more popular or you just want to include more content, this may develop into a problem in case that your hosting account has limited database space for storage. What the specific effect of hitting the limit will be depends on the script - the site can work adequately, but you may not be able to add any new information; the site may be shown with errors; or, in the worst scenario, the whole site could simply go offline.
