Data Compression in Shared Web Hosting
The cloud web hosting platform where your shared web hosting account is created uses the advanced ZFS file system. The LZ4 compression method which the aforementioned uses is superior in numerous aspects, and not only does it compress information better than any compression method that some other file systems use, but it is also quicker. The benefits may be significant in particular on compressible content like website files. Even though it may sound illogical, uncompressing data with LZ4 is quicker than reading uncompressed data from a hard disk, so the performance of each and every Internet site hosted on our servers will be improved. The better and faster compression rates also make it possible for us to produce multiple daily backups of the full content in each Internet hosting account, so in the event you delete anything by accident, the last backup which we have will not be more than a couple of hours old. This is possible because the backups take a lot less space and their generation is quick enough, so as to not affect the performance of the servers.
