It causes a bigger processor load on the server (it has to run the programs).

Plus it can be more easily exploited by hackers than html, and will therefore need more and better admins.

Solution: Buy hosting, or...(fun but tiring and hard sometimes): Grab Apache and host your website yourself. Very fun. Write CGI programs in C/C++. Or even QBasic (as I''m doing).
(although getting mysql up is a nightmare).
