 What is Download Accelerator Plus?

Download Accelerator Plus (DAP) is the leading download acceleration program. DAP is fully integrated into the browser and may speed up your downloads by up to 300% (according to users and web sites reviews). DAP's key features include the ability to accelerate downloading of files in FTP and HTTP protocols, to pause and resume downloads, and to recover from dropped internet connections. DAP is compatible with ANY Internet connection (dial-up, cable, DSL / ADSL, T1, etc.) and assures that users get maximum performance from available bandwidth.

 What is the Mirror Search feature?

On the Internet the same file is often hosted on numerous mirror sites, such as at universities and on ISP servers. When a user begins downloading a file, DAP immediately senses it and the Mirror Search feature initiates a search for mirror sites that may host the requested file.

 How does Download Accelerator Plus accelerate the delivery of files?

DAP acceleration is achieved by two factors: by locating the most responsive servers from which the file will be downloaded, and by implementing multi-connection downloading from those servers.

Downloading from the most responsive servers - DAP executes a proximity check to determine

which of the available mirror sites are most responsive in relation to the specific user's location.

The file is then downloaded from the most responsive server(s).

Multi-connection downloading - the file is downloaded in several segments through multiple connections and

reassembled on the user's computer. This results in better utilization of the user's available bandwidth.

 What happens if I lose my connection to a server?

When a connection is dropped due to poor network conditions, electrical breakdown or any other reason, Download Accelerator Plus will be able to resume the download (when the server supports Resume functionality).
See question: How do I resume my downloads?

 Why can't I accelerate or resume some of my downloads?

The Acceleration and Resume features are enabled only when downloading a file from a server that supports resume. Most servers on the Internet support resumeable downloads, but some may not.
Another possible reason is the use of a proxy server, which may also influence resume functionality. If you are using a proxy and do not have Resume functionality, please consult our support team.
