I just got my VPS. The FTP transfers to the VPS are very fast, but it takes a long time (5+ seconds) to login. It also takes 5+ seconds to initiate a transfer.
Does this have to do with how my FTP system is configed? If so, how do I fix it?

Yes, there is, but I totally forgot how to do it. Funny you have this problem today, as we just got a support ticket last night about this. I'll ask the engineer that repairs it how he did it and post the details here.
You might find it also on Google.

I am the technician that fixed this problem on our support earlier yesterday. I can tell you now how to fix it.
This repair applies to Plesk installation on Virtuozzo, and most likely is applying to any Plesk installation on any Linux based operating system, but I cannot guarantee this.
1. Login via root to SSH
2. Open the file /etc/proftpd.conf
3. Adding a line on the bottom of the file is OK, that must state:
(to add this line, you must press Insert on your keyboard, and then you can manipulate the VIM program to add / remove text from file)
4. Then press Escape, following with ":w" command to write the file
5. Now you may be using :q command to quit VIM, or you may press Control+Z to exit after saving the file.
You may now restart the FTP service or simply restart the VPS server and this problem will be resolved. In my case the support ticket was solved based on this information.
