Given that script-driven applications gather their information in a database, adding more content to this sort of site won't lead to a larger size of the application files, but in a bigger size of the database the site employs. If you happen to run a WordPress blog, for instance, the disk space which its database employs shall expand when you add new posts and visitors leave responses below them. A growing database can become an issue if the hosting account that you use has limited space for storage and sometimes even plans with unlimited space in general have limited database storage area. If you reach the limit, you will not be able to add new information. Other potential outcomes are that your site may not work the way it should or that it might not appear online at all, which can result in lost potential clients.
