In comparison with a static HTML website where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven website gathers its data inside a database. Just a couple of examples of this type of sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product or service listings, selling prices, blog posts, user responses and so on are stored in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the information you add, the bigger the database gets and if your website hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your Internet site might not work properly when you reach that limit. The effects can range from being unable to add new information to poorly working website or even the site displaying nothing but error messages and not being available at all.
