Slow Server?

Hello
I am wondering if my websites on 1and1.co.uk are fast enough.

One  site http://boatsforsalenow.com  allows images to be uploaded and occassionally people inform me they were not able to upload.

Today I emailed some images about 7 megabytesand it took about 4.5 minites to send
In a ping a reply is taking  around 45 ms
(bytes=32 time = 45ms)

I this a reasonable time for the reply and also an email send og images please?

Many thanks

John

I previously asked experts to recommend a hosting provider, and almost all of them said that 1and1 is a poor provider.  You can read on it here:

I ended going with GoDaddy, but you may want to call 1and1 first and find out if they can offer you anything better.

Thanks epichero22

How do the speeds I quoted seem? I am not sufficiently familiar with the ms to form an opinion?
Generally my experience with 1and1 is good. I have had very few down times, so far my only concern is the speed.

Well, email is determined by your Internet Service Provider and the ping rate may not tell you a whole lot about 1and1's performance.  It's all about what's going on in their internal servers that may be causing the slow down.  I would still call them to complain and maybe call other providers to see what they can also offer you.  If 1and1 is costing you business, dump them.
