Question Additional Bandwidth Charges for Dedicated Servers

I've been looking at your dedicated server packages. I like the low pricing I see for the dual P4 server, but see that it only has 1000GB of bandwidth. What happens at the 1000GB quota? Is our traffic blocked, or are we billed for the additional use, and if so, at what rate?

Dear DiskMD,

Thank you for your inquiry.

At that 1000GB bandwidth limit your server will not be blocked, you would be billed for additional use. The overage rate is $0.50 per GB.

With every server we offer an overview of the used bandwidth directly from the switch, so you are able to see how much has been used at any given time.

Best regards,

So, to have 2000GB bandwidth like your larger scale servers, we're going to be charged an additional $500.00/month

Yes that's the only way to get additional bandwidth on servers at the moment unless if you get an unmetered connection with the server. We can do this p4 3.0ghz with 10mbps unmetered port for $399 per month.

Getting a dual xeon or opteron is probably cheaper.

We are moving into some higher bandwidth commitments with our carriers at the moment. Once this is done we should be able to offer this at a (somewhat) lower price.
