Data Compression in Shared Website Hosting
The cloud internet hosting platform where your shared website hosting account is created employs the cutting-edge ZFS file system. The LZ4 compression method which the aforementioned uses is superior in a number of aspects, and not only does it compress information better than any compression method which a number of other file systems use, but it is also considerably quicker. The benefits are significant especially on compressible content like website files. Even though it could sound irrational, uncompressing data with LZ4 is faster than reading uncompressed info from a hard disk, so the performance of any website hosted on our servers will be improved. The better and faster compression rates also allow us to make multiple daily backups of the whole content in each and every hosting account, so if you delete something by accident, the last back-up copy which we have will not be more than several hours old. This can be done because the backups take considerably less space and their generation is quick enough, so as to not change the performance of our servers.
