    Server download speed

    Hi all

    I've two shared hosting accounts, one is hostgator and other is godaddy.

    I've uploaded a file (.flv) on hostgator and same file on godaddy.

    here a link to both

    Hostgator flv


    Goddady flv


    Now i am use a Download manager " free download manager" to download files
    The hostgator file downloads at 17-35kb/s
    The godaddy file downloads at 200kb/s

    I am using 2Mbps dsl.

    Also my hostgator cpanel loads slow. and other files are downloads at very low max 40kb/s.

    What are the issues. I've contacted hostgator support and they say that every thing is ok on their end.
    I have to stream videos on hostgator but the speed is too slow. and it buffers alot.

    Guide me please.
    Regards.

    I get around 2.0megabytes per second (16megabit) from both and that's the maximum of my connection. (Without a download manager.)

    It all depends on your connection and your ISPs connection. Here in GA, USA, with cable internet, I get
    hostgator: 691.5 kb/s
    godaddy: 433.3 kb/s

    (without using a download manager)

    well, it can.
    i discussed it with hostgator support and they also mention that the godaddy servers might be geographically close to your location ( i am based in pakistan).
    Can it affect ?

    Regards.

    It can make a big difference over that far of a distance - if most of your user base/visitors are from Pakistan then I would go with the one that provides the better connection but if your visitors are world-wide it shouldn't make much of a difference over-all.

    Do run a traceroute to both servers and post it up.

    start->run->cmd
    type "tracert IP.Addr.ess.here"

    The latency is very comparable - I wouldn't think it would make *that* big of a difference but I guess the real world results say more than the "tests".

    Maybe others will have ideas/suggestions.

    well thanks all,
    This might sound crazy, but just asking ..

    Just wanted to ask if there is a way or method from which i can see which hosting servers are geographically close to my location. I am in pakistan. and almost all hosting providers here are resellers of hostgators and other international big servers..

    So is there a way that i can find the closest hosting servers around my location.(Pakistan)

    Regards.

    You would have to ask the provider if they don't provide the information directly on their web site. I know that HawkHost has at least one server in Washington D.C. which should provide good connectivity to you - contact them and see if they can give you a test file.

    "closest hosting servers around my location.(Pakistan)"

    Check your ISP bandwidth and backbone details

    then you can see how they have international bandwidth links and to where

    try speed test from SG , I found this from WHT Dedicated Hosting Offers

    Provider: Qala Singapore Pte Ltd
    Server Location: Singapore

    I like if you can post tracert and download from this IP

    I get good speed to both .flv file, maybe a little slower @ hostgator but nothing to worry about.

    Godaddy: 349K/s
    Hostgator: 317K/s

    Not an overly significant difference. I'm on a 10mbps line, so neither maxes it out. I'm in Romania.

    Seems like your connection to HG is experiencing some issues. Both hosts have their servers in the US as far as I know, and the difference in transfer speed should not be huge. It doesn't mean it's HG's fault though. There are lots of providers in the chain.

    Reflects my results very closely. Though the file size was too small and it downloaded before the max speed could be reached. The hostgator one was faster though.
