I’m attempting a Louie CK style buy-a-downloadable-copy of a video I created…
…and I’m hearing that my download speeds aren’t so great. I see 50kb/sec. One customer (err… my second customer out of 2) says 12kb/sec.
This is a 1GB file. Can’t imagine any CPU load involved. Even 50kb/sec is disappointing.
Now I’m using the ~$10/mo hosting solution so I know it is shared, and I was never sure if this was a good fit. But now that it appears to NOT be a good fit, what’s the next step up for BANDWIDTH?
It is already “unlimited”. And most of the DreamHost options I could switch to look like they would help with CPU loads, not bandwidth.
(I am considering hosting just the video file itself on Amazon S3/CloudFront… should I just take the video portion elsewhere and link to it from DreamHost?)
Thanks for any help,
