I understand that Dreamhost supports the following ways to transfer files to/from your account:
- SSH (using scp or sftp for instance)
- AFP (for Apple Macs)
- WebDav (but only for certain directories)
- Http (but only for downloads of course)
Now I am curious which of these provides the best performance (i e gives me the shortest up/download times)?
The reason for asking is that I think that ftp appears to be slow. Is DH puttings some kind of throttling to ftp as it appears not to reach over a certain figure for uploads?
Is this why they can offer those tremendous figures for bandwidth per month? (Because in practice it is impossible to reach them?)
