Limit Bandwidth as Data Volume Approaches Limit

Hey all,

I have a debian webserver which I administer remotely via ssh and use to host some websites and files for personal use. However I have a data volume quota for each month and as I approach the quota (say 50megs from it) I want to be able to redirect all traffic who goto the my site or any of its sub domains to a static page saying the page can't be accessed as its reached its bandwidth quota. Has anyone any thoughts or experience on how to implement this??

Thanks in advance for any thoughts or comments

Maybe you can do it with Apache's mod_cband.
