Data Compression in Shared Website Hosting
The cloud internet hosting platform where your shared website hosting account shall be created employs the reliable ZFS file system. The LZ4 compression method that the aforementioned employs is better in a number of aspects, and not only does it compress info better than any compression method which similar file systems use, but it is also a lot faster. The benefits will be significant especially on compressible content like website files. While it may sound unreasonable, uncompressing data with LZ4 is quicker than reading uncompressed data from a hard drive, so the performance of any website hosted on our servers shall be boosted. The better and faster compression rates also allow us to produce a large number of daily backups of the entire 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 is possible as the backups take considerably less space and their generation is quick enough, to not affect the performance of our servers.
