Unlike a static HTML website where all content is on the actual pages of the site, any script-driven site collects its data in a database. Just a couple of examples of this kind of websites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart e-commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, prices, blog posts, user reviews and so forth are collected in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the info you include, the bigger the database becomes and if your Internet hosting plan has some limit for the maximum size a database may have, your Internet site might not perform correctly when you reach that limit. The consequences can range from not being able to add new data to improperly working Internet site or even the site displaying nothing but error messages and not being online at all.
