Data Compression in Shared Hosting
The cloud hosting platform where your shared hosting account shall be made uses the innovative ZFS file system. The LZ4 compression method that the latter employs is superior in lots of aspects, and not only does it compress information better than any compression method that many other file systems use, but it is also quicker. The gains are significant particularly on compressible content which includes website files. Although it may sound illogical, uncompressing data with LZ4 is faster than reading uncompressed info from a hard drive, so the performance of every Internet site hosted on our servers shall be enhanced. The better and faster compression rates also allow us to generate numerous daily backups of the entire content in every single hosting account, so should you delete anything by accident, the last back-up copy that we have will not be more than a couple of hours old. This can be done as the backups take significantly less space and their generation is fast enough, to not change the performance of our servers.
