[Techtalk] FTP uploads failing

It sounds as if GoDaddy's FTP server is timing out the connection after a while.

I'm not on a satellite connection, but I do sometimes get connection problems uploading content to them over SSH. It's less of an issue there of course, retrying is a matter of an extra few seconds.

If it used to work better for you, either GoDaddy have changed something on their end, or your ISP has changed something. Asking each of them about this would be a good first step: one of them might say "oh yes, we increased buffering/reduced timeouts" or similar, giving you somewhere to look for fixes. Being a paying customer, they should make some effort to help if they can!
