In comparison with a static HTML Internet site where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven site stores all of its info inside a database. Just a couple of examples of this kind of sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, selling prices, blog posts, user feedback etc are gathered in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the info you include, the bigger the database gets and if your Internet hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your website might not perform adequately when you hit that limit. The end results can vary from being unable to include new data to improperly functioning site or even the website displaying only error messages and not being available at all.
