In contrast to a static HTML site where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven site stores all its info in a database. Just a few examples of this type of sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, item listings, rates, blog posts, user responses and so forth are collected in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the information you add, the bigger the database gets and if your Internet hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your site may not work correctly once you hit that limit. The consequences can range from inability to add new data to improperly performing website or even the site displaying only error messages and not being available at all.
