Data Compression in Shared Hosting
The cloud web hosting platform where your shared hosting account will be created employs the reliable ZFS file system. The LZ4 compression method that the latter uses is superior in many aspects, and not only does it compress data better than any compression method that some other file systems use, but it's also faster. The gains may be significant particularly on compressible content such as website files. Despite the fact that it could sound irrational, uncompressing data with LZ4 is faster than reading uncompressed info from a hard disk, so the performance of any Internet site hosted on our servers shall be improved. The better and quicker compression rates also make it possible for us to generate a large number of daily backups of the full content in every single hosting account, so if you delete anything by accident, the last back-up copy which we have won't be more than several hours old. This is possible as the backups take significantly less space and their generation is quick enough, so as to not change the performance of our servers.
