    I have a few clients that use good amounts of system resources. For example I have this one guy who right now is at.

    gelerbiz geler.biz 0.01 14.45 0.0

    14.45% of memory is alot. I know some companies charge for anything over 5%. Can some of you tell me how you charge and if you do how much etc.

    We usually charge more or basically ask them to upgrade plans if they are using more resoruces.
    For example, we had a search engine that was hosted by us (just a small one) however we felt that it was using too much resources for the plan it was on - so said to them its not fair the money that your paying to the resources that your using. Even though they were well withing their bandwidth and space.

    As i said, we thought they were paying too little for what they were getting - and they upgraded to a larger plan.

    From a 10/month plan to 30/month.

    So just do it on a case per case basis and don't have a policy on it. I just don't want customers using all kinds of resources. I think a policy is needed though to protect me. I can't just one day say your using to many resources you have to upgrade. I have to have a set amount of resource usage before they are in need of an upgrade.
