Is there an option to disable bandwidth overage?

I’m looking for a place to host my personal sillyness, but the nagging fear something I post might go viral is always in the back of my head. Is there an option to just cut off when I pass the bandwidth cap rather than accruing charges?

Hello friend,

There is not currently a feature that does this on the platform side. Theoretically something like this could be built to run on the droplet, perhaps using the output of vnstat to determine whether or not to run a specific action (like disable web server or power off). I have no code examples as I am merely theorizing on ways to accomplish it.

The idea of having something platform side to handle something like this is an interesting one though. I’m going to carry that feedback to our product team and get their thoughts on it.

Kind Regards, Jarland
