Good evening everyone,
I’m running into a bit of a snag that I can’t seem to figure out, and can’t quite seem to get an answer from the DreamHost support either, and was wondering if anyone on here has had any similar experiences.
I have a basic hosting plan, and have three different sites (one domain, and two subdomains of the primary one). As of now, there is no content on any of the sites, mainly just directory indexes as I figure out what I need to do in order to get things up and running (playing with Joomla, Gallery, etc). Anyways, one of the sites is extremely slow in downloading files, while the other two are extremely fast. On the two fast sites, I can download files at over 600 KB/s, while on the slow site, files rarely hit 15 KB/s. These speeds are consistent at all times of the day, and from various locations (my home, work, school, and various friends located across the US). All of the sites are located on the same webserver and in the same home directory (/home/myusername).
Does anyone know what might be causing these slow speeds? There isn’t anything wrong with the domain and the nameservers (since the other sites work well) as far as I can see, and simply don’t know what might be causing the issue other than if DreamHost somehow intervened and placed a speed limit on one particular site. Do they do this?
