    What do you do when you have more than enough bandwidth?

    And you can't downgrade your service.

    Or else buy a cheaper service.

    Unless you're paying top dollar for your account, then it's not really an issue.

    However, if your sites begin to take off, you can really need that bandwidth!

    Lots of hosts give you more bandwidth than you need, knowing you wont use it. Cheap hosts have been known to shut down your account if you come close to or go over your allottment, because they don't expect you to use it. If you're not using the full amount of most of your allotted features, step down a plan or switch hosts. Otherwise, there's not much you can do.

    Man, if that's your problem, I'd like to have it.

    There's a few ways to go about this problem:

    1) Do what Uncensored-Host suggested; get permanent inbound links to your site from other sites and garner both the direct (user) and indirect (search engine) traffic. Do this for about 6-8 months, and you'll have the exact opposite problem.

    2) Find out if your hosting plan allows for multiple FTP accounts. If it does, set up a second FTP account and let someone share your space and bandwidth for a minimal outlay. This will use up more bandwidth and save on hosting costs at the same time.

    3) Switch to a more suitable host that offers a more appropriate downgraded plan. Just make sure that, if you do this, there's room to upgrade later.
