FTP (File Transfer protocol) is the easiest way to access files on web servers. This doesn’t only help us to download files, also uploading, deleting, changing permissions and creating directories are main functions. As we have been using FTP to manage files of our websites since years. The most famous program FileZilla is efficient and great program to use for FTP.
The problem we mostly face with Filezilla is its speed. The downloading speed is very slow by default two files are downloading and similarly two files are uploading. Its okay for small number of files but what when you are dealing with websites which have thousand of files.
- Increase FileZilla FTP download speed
- Increase FileZilla FTP upload speed
How to make FileZilla Transfer Fast
When you install a fresh FileZilla without any changes and on its default parameters. The default transfer number is set to two simultaneous transfers.
Remember if your internet connection is slow then two simultaneous transfers are good. Otherwise you can see many failed transfers. But if your internet connection is high speed you can increase it upto 10 files simultaneous transfers. Just make sure you set the number which work good with your internet connection.
Here are the instructions to increase the number of simultaneous transfers in FileZilla for faster upload and download of files:
- In Filezilla click Edit.
- Click Settings….
- Click Transfers.
- Increase Maximum simultaneous transfers to 10.
- Click Ok.
Note: You can set up maximum number of transfers to 10.
Getting Failed Transfers after changing Simultaneous Transfers?
So if you find that you are getting failed transfers or your internet connection is too slow for your other tasks (whilst transferring files). In that case lower the number of concurrent transfers in FileZilla and find the number which can help you perform all tasks better.
