i am using digitalocean spaces to store images. i am created subdomain for spaces and enabled a default cdn. but still it is so slow to load images in my site. it takes 1.5 sec to load images

  • i having same issue for videos

  • I’ve the same issue with a photo sized 43.8 kB, it took 2.20 s to load

    In comparison to AWS S3 this (which I always use, and this is my first time I’m using Spaces) there is a huge difference for some reason.

    Perhaps there is an option to enable or like GCP a type like cold or hot line.

Hi there @lilboat,

I am currently not seeing any reported problems with Spaces on the DigitalOcean status page here:

Can you please share a little bit more information regarding the issue that you are seeing like:

  • Which is the exact location that you’ve created your Space in?

  • Also, what is the exact size of the images that you are uploading?

  • Can you share a screenshot of your web console network tab with the problematic images load time?
