What happens when you go over the bandwidth limit?


#1

Is there a way to configure what happens when you go over the bandwidth limit (in my case, 1000GB per month)? I would like it to simply shut off the site, so that I don’t get charged exorbitantly in case of a DOS attack, for example.

Thanks for your help.

I think the best way to accomplish what you describe is to “throttle” your bandwidth to prevent unexpected extra charges.

You can do that via the Control Panel->Status->Bandwidth page where you can make bandwidth limiting settings.

That’s exactly what I wanted! Thanks a lot! I can’t believe I didn’t notice that myself in the panel. I guess my brain skipped over ‘status’ for some reason.
