Should localhost traffic count towards bandwidth allotment?

Wed Sep 21, 2011 9:23 am

'm on SimpleHelix and hosting my Magento store there. I've discovered that the image caching extension I've installed uses calls through the web server and is using around 95% of my bandwidth. In other words, in Webalizer I see that 95% of my bandwidth consumption is coming from the same IP as my server.

SimpleHelix wants to charge me for all this bandwidth. Do you think that's fair? They don't pay for any of that bandwidth as it never leaves their network, or even that machine for that matter.

I'm definitely going to fix the code so it doesn't eat up all that bandwidth, but I'd like to get my money back for the bandwidth overage.
