Very slow transfer speeds via FTP


Went to upload to my site today and I am getting speeds at about 100 kb/sec. Yesterday I was getting 1000kb/sec. Everything is fine on my end. Does Dreamhost throttle speeds at all?


We actually don’t throttle FTP at all. We took a look, and things with your web server seem in order. Have you tried testing the current upload speeds from your local ISP to compare?

You may also want to try uploading via some different FTP clients. We put together a good list of some to try here:
