Given that script-driven applications store their information inside a database, including more content to this kind of website will not cause a larger size of the application files, but in a bigger size of the database your site uses. In case you run a WordPress blog, for example, the disk space which its database uses shall grow as you add new posts and site visitors leave responses underneath them. An increasing database may become an issue if the website hosting account which you use has limited space and occasionally even plans with unlimited space in general still have limited database storage space. When you reach the limit, you shall not be able to add new content. Other possible consequences are that your site may not perform the way it ought to or that it may not appear online at all, which might result in lost potential customers.
