Data Compression in Shared Website Hosting
The cloud hosting platform where your shared website hosting account shall be made employs the impressive ZFS file system. The LZ4 compression method which the aforementioned employs is superior in a number of aspects, and not only does it compress information better than any compression method which many other file systems use, but it is also a lot faster. The benefits are significant especially on compressible content like website files. Even though it may sound irrational, uncompressing data with LZ4 is quicker than reading uncompressed info from a hard disk drive, so the performance of each and every Internet site hosted on our servers shall be enhanced. The better and faster compression rates also allow us to produce a number of daily backups of the full content in each web hosting account, so in the event you delete something by accident, the last back-up copy that we have will not be more than several hours old. This can be done because the backups take significantly less space and their generation is quick enough, to not change the performance of the servers.
