Bandwidth Charges

Higher levels of traffic than normal on your website included email can incur overcharges on a monthly basis. Monster Design Studios can provide web reports for network traffic monitoring and reporting when an overuse is in question. Monster Design Studios can also provide graphs that show customers’ monthly usage when an over use has occurred, which is the average rate, and reflects the amount of bandwidth transferred during the month. The bandwidth charges reflects the average monthly bandwidth in Kilobits per second (Kbps) and in Gb/month. These charges reflect our expenses in network maintenance, upgrades, backbone port charges, leased line loops, and equipment.

For an exploit to be considered catastrophic, it must be attacking widely deployed applications that are in use on a majority of servers. For example, but not limited to, software related to DNS, APACHE, CMS and SENDMAIL. Monster Design Studios has the right to temporarily shut your website down until threat has been eliminated.
