A growing database may become a problem if the web hosting account that you use has limited space for storage and sometimes even plans with unlimited space in general have limited database storage area. When you reach the limit, you shall not be able to add new content. Other possible results are that your site may not perform the way it ought to or that it might not appear online at all, which may result in lost potential clients.
