Given that script-driven applications store their content inside a database, incorporating more content to this type of website shall not result in a larger size of the application files, but in a larger size of the database your site employs. If you run a WordPress blog, for example, the disk space which its database employs shall increase whenever you add new posts and site visitors leave comments beneath them. An expanding database could become an issue if the web hosting account that you use has limited space for storage and occasionally even plans with unlimited space in general still have limited database space. After you reach the limit, you won't be able to add new info. Other potential results are that your site may not work the way it should or that it might not appear online at all, which might result in lost potential clients.
