Data Compression in Shared Web Hosting
The cloud web hosting platform where your shared web hosting account will be created employs the outstanding ZFS file system. The LZ4 compression method which the latter uses is superior in many aspects, and not only does it compress data better than any compression method that similar file systems use, but it's also much quicker. The gains may be significant especially on compressible content which includes website files. Despite the fact that it may sound illogical, uncompressing data with LZ4 is quicker than reading uncompressed data from a hard disk, so the performance of every Internet site hosted on our servers shall be improved. The better and faster compression rates also allow us to generate a number of daily backups of the whole content in each and every hosting account, so should you delete anything by accident, the last back-up copy that we have won't be more than several hours old. This is possible because the backups take significantly less space and their generation is quick enough, to not influence the performance of our servers.
