Queues. Use mangle rules and Address Lists to mark the packets to the sites in question. Then add a queue which limits throughput based on that packet mark.

Hm...I don't see need for mangle here. You can just do simple queue and place it on top of other queues

go to queue simple and type this:

add name="site" target-addresses=0.0.0.0/0 dst-address=x.x.x.x/32 (site IP)interface=all parent=none priority=8 queue=default/default limit-at=0/0 max-limit=64000/64000 (or whatever) total-queue=default

And this should limit all traffic to specific site to 64k
Remeber, this queue should be placed on top of other queues.

Cheers....

Yes, djape is correct, but I suggested the mangle so that address lists could be used to manage the list of site, else you will end up with lots and lots of queues.

Take a look at Butch Evans site http://www.butchevans.com/articles.php?cat_id=3
for some help as well.

Completely agree...
For few sites queue simple is cool, but for whole bunch of sites you should lesten to JJCinAZ
