If you run a WordPress blog, for example, the disk space that its database uses shall increase whenever you add new posts and website visitors leave responses beneath them. A growing database can become an issue if the website hosting account which you use has limited space and sometimes even plans with unlimited space in general still have limited database space. If you reach the limit, you will not be able to add new content. Other potential outcomes are that your website may not work the way it should or that it may not appear online at all, which can result in lost potential clients.
