Compared with a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven Internet site collects its data inside a database. Just a few examples of such websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product or service listings, prices, blog posts, user feedback etc are collected in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the data you add, the bigger the database becomes and if your Internet hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your site may not work adequately when you hit that limit. The consequences can vary from inability to add new information to inadequately performing website or even the site displaying only error messages and not being accessible at all.
