You cannot limit bandwidth usage and number of connections to a site; there is no Bandwidth Limiting option in Websites & Domains tab (in the Advanced Operations group) even if mod_bw is installed.


Bandwidth limitation is currently not available if Nginx is enabled. The feature request number 1661520 has been already submitted regarding the matter.


If you disable Nginx:

Tools & Settings > Services management > stop 'Reverse Proxy Server (nginx)' 

then the 'Bandwidth Limiting' option will be available under the Websites & Domains in the Advanced Operations group.
