How and when is bandwidth usage calculated?
Every night we calculate every site's usage for that day, and compare it to their usage so far in that billing cycle to see if they are on pace to go over their allotment for that month. If so, the site owner is automatically sent an email with all the relevant data, including our predicted usage and how much extra that would cost. This generally gives plenty of advance warning for people to tone down their page sizes or do whatever they'd like to do to avoid charges.

When somebody actually goes over their allotment for the monthly billing cycle, that daily calculator will again email them, and this time let them know that a charge has been assessed to their account. The charges will build up daily until the end of that monthly billing cycle, at which point the final amount will be charged to the account credit card (or whatever payment method they choose to use).
