In comparison with a static HTML website where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven website collects all of its info in 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, item listings, rates, blog posts, user feedback etc are collected in the database and not in the actual script files. The more the information you include, the larger the database gets and if your website hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database can have, your site might not perform adequately when you reach that limit. The results can range from inability to add new data to inadequately working website or even the site showing nothing but error messages and not being accessible at all.
