I need to slow considerably down (I plan to something like 56 kbps download speed) a connection with a certain website at a certain time of the day. My objective is to discourage the user to browse that website at that period of time. Not to show that the website is not available, no. I want to let the user to navigate in this website, but restrict speed to discourage the use of it.
For example, slow down the connection with http://www.website.com
at 4 am to something like 48 or 56 kbps. And then at 11 am let it flow at the normal speed of the network.
4:00 - 11:00 am = connection with http://www.website.com
- down speed 56 kbps.
rest of the day = connection with http://www.website.com
- down speed 3024 kbps.
Is this possible to do easily? Will I need to create a complex script (what I'm not capable of) for this? or will any available programs for Linux (I use Ubuntu 10.04 on this computer) help me?
Sorry for my ignorance, and thank you very much in advance.
