And its not possible to send only the files from ip.downloads to another domain?

That was already answered. It neither a direct option nor would it be a recommendable one, given how slow it is to establish a full FTP connection each time.

I am sad to see NO FTP option.

I have a second server designed for mass storage. This would be perfect for me as I am transferring LARGE video files. A slow FTP connection is totally ok in my case for downloads app and video files.

I get that this would be slow for avatars and other attachments etc etc

BUT,,, I need it for marketplace downloads. It would be totally fine for that.

Will there be a solve? Can someone make a custom plugin?

FTP was an option in the past but has been deprecated - we don't recommend using FTP as an external storage handler.

It's not just "slow", and it can be challenging to explain/understand the technicalities of this.

I would recommend going with one of the other ideas (mounting/curlftpfs, etc.) if speed is not the biggest concern. This will be a lot more reliable in the end. Using FTP within PHP is still subject to PHP's performance limitations (memory limit, time limit, etc.) which do not play well with large files typically.
