In case you run a WordPress blog, for example, the disk space which its database uses shall expand anytime you add new posts and visitors leave responses underneath them. An increasing database may develop into an issue if the hosting account which you use has limited space for storage and sometimes even plans with unlimited space in general still have limited database storage area. If you reach the limit, you shall not be able to add new content. Other potential results are that your internet site may not work the way it ought to or that it might not appear online at all, which can result in lost potential clients.
