As script-driven applications collect their info in a database, incorporating more content to this kind of site will not lead to a larger size of the app files, but in a bigger size of the database your site uses. In case you run a WordPress blog, for example, the disk space that its database uses will grow when you add new posts and website visitors leave comments beneath them. A growing database could become a problem if the website hosting account you use has limited space and occasionally even plans with unlimited space in general still have limited database storage area. Once you reach the limit, you won't be able to add new information. Other possible consequences are that your internet site may not perform the way it should or that it may not appear online at all, which could result in lost potential customers.
