    Well the hard truth about Internet advertising is NOBODY CLICKS THE ADS!

    And as soon as you start charging for it, people will simply move on to another proxy which *is free. This would of course solve your bandwidth problem, however it rather defeats the purpose of having a proxy available for anybody.

    There are also legal problems you may face with running such a proxy, however I am unaware of the laws governing it in India.

    You should also realize that once you open up an HTTP proxy, almost any service can be proxied through it. IRC proxying through web prixies is a snap, and I am aware of a few ways to proxy SMTP through them, which would get you listed on spam blacklists.

    Perhaps you could keep good logs and let each user proxy one site per day or week or something... that would lower your bandwidth usage a fair bit.

    All in all, my advice is to discontinue the service. There's too many hassles involved IMHO.

    Thanks for reply sir But my server is located in USA not India.
    And I only run http proxy.
    I think I will disable image service. As the log say the 80% of bandwidth was consumed by images .
    I will wait for 30 days if i get $30(i pay $1/GB) then I will continue else remove it .
