Compared with a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven Internet site stores its info 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, selling prices, blog posts, user responses etc are stored in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the info you add, the more substantial the database becomes and if your hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your Internet site might not function adequately when you reach that limit. The results can vary from being unable to include new content to badly working Internet site or even the website showing only error messages and not being online at all.
