I’ve been thinking about how to set up multiple sites on the same plan without having them interfere with each other too badly. It’s great to be able to limit the amount of disk space that any particular user/e-mail user can suck up, but I’m wondering about the same sort of thing for bandwidth.
That is, if I’ve got domain.com and dude.domain.com, but I don’t want dude.domain.com being able to suck up more than a couple of GB of my monthly transfer and costing me a bundle on the chance it suddenly becomes wildly popular, I’d be nice to be able to set some sort of limit that way.
That’s not the way Dreamhost is set up at all, so I doubt I’ll ever see something like that through the web panel, but is there some sort of server-side tool to filter things through that might be able to limit the number of downloads per day, or something like that?
I guess I’m just thinking out loud, but maybe somebody can offer a suggestion.
