Compared with a static HTML website where all content is on the actual website pages, any script-driven site collects all its information in a database. Just a couple of examples of this sort of sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, rates, blog posts, user reviews and so on are stored in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the information you include, the bigger the database gets and if your hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your website may not function adequately after you hit that limit. The consequences can range from not being able to include new content to badly functioning site or even the website showing only error messages and not being online at all.
