I am looking at going with Linode for my cloud hosting needs. I want to start off cheap with their $10 plan. Looking at the 'fine print' I got alarmed by this:
If you exceed your monthly bandwidth quota, your account will be billed for $0.02/GB at the end of the current month.
Making some quick calculations, I worked out that I could be billed for $6,479,999.96 (bandwidth overages over the 2TB quota at 125 Mbps).
Is this correct? Is there a way that I can prevent this for sure? I would rather no way to be charged over $10 than it be very very unlikely that I would be charged over $10.
Is there a way to auto-shutdown the Linode when I exceed my transfer quota?
