Data Compression in Shared Website Hosting
The cloud internet hosting platform where your shared website hosting account is made employs the cutting-edge ZFS file system. The LZ4 compression method that the latter uses is better in various aspects, and not only does it compress info better than any compression method that many other file systems use, but it's also much faster. The gains are significant especially on compressible content like website files. Although it could sound unreasonable, uncompressing data with LZ4 is quicker than reading uncompressed data from a hard disk, so the performance of each and every website hosted on our servers will be enhanced. The better and faster compression rates also allow us to generate numerous daily backups of the full content in each web hosting account, so in the event you delete anything by mistake, the last back-up copy that we have won't be more than a few hours old. This can be done because the backups take much less space and their generation is fast enough, so as to not influence the performance of our servers.
