Webpage Download Speed / File Hosting contribution

Post by loedgreem »

I noticed today that the download speed of images is very slow. I was pulling an install image of 150 MB size and it took me about 10 mins to complete it. Im based in Germany and my net bandwith is about 250 MBit. While this download was running, I wasnt able to open a separate webpage of DietPi in a new tab, because everything stuck.

Has anywone noticed the same?

Im wondering if I could contribute to spend some file sharing bandwith for DiePi homepage? I could sync the repository to my own server to run a mirror like service. Whould that be interesting and helpful to the comunity?

Thanks for a short feedback :)

Thanks & Regards
-Sven

Personally, I'm hosting a mirror of the DietPi images on IPFS, at /ipns/k51qzi5uqu5dl4k8ow3pqwed6dg3pmeadtaaq2npbdj5g5nx2bb58un143rvdk, and I have a request open to make that more 'mainstream' at https://github.com/MichaIng/DietPi-Website/issues/97.

Hi,

I'm located in Germany as well and I have no issues to download the image. They are on my side in less than a minute.
