Due to the fact that script-driven applications collect their info inside a database, adding more info to this kind of site will not lead to a bigger size of the application files, but in a larger size of the database the website uses. In case you run a WordPress blog, for example, the disk space its database employs will expand as you add new posts and site visitors leave comments beneath them. An expanding database can become an issue if the web hosting account that you use has limited space for storage and sometimes even plans with unlimited space in general have limited database storage space. When you reach the limit, you will not be able to add new info. Other potential outcomes are that your website may not work the way it should or that it may not appear online at all, which may result in lost potential customers.
