Since script-driven applications collect their content in a database, incorporating more content to this sort of website won't cause a bigger size of the application files, but in a larger size of the database your website uses. In case you run a WordPress blog, for example, the disk space its database employs shall expand anytime you add new posts and visitors leave opinions below them. An expanding database may develop into an issue if the website hosting account that you use has limited space for storage and sometimes even plans with unlimited space in general still have limited database storage area. When you reach the limit, you will not be able to add new information. Other probable consequences are that your website may not perform the way it should or that it might not appear online at all, which could result in lost customers.
