Data Compression in Hosting
The cloud internet hosting platform where your hosting account is created works by using the innovative ZFS file system. The LZ4 compression method that the latter employs is better in a number of aspects, and not only does it compress data better than any compression method which a variety of other file systems use, but it is also faster. The benefits can be significant especially on compressible content such as website files. Despite the fact that it may sound illogical, uncompressing data with LZ4 is quicker than reading uncompressed info from a hard disk drive, so the performance of each site hosted on our servers will be upgraded. The better and faster compression rates also allow us to produce a large number of daily backups of the full content in every single web hosting account, so if you delete something by accident, the last backup that we have will not be more than a few hours old. This can be done because the backups take significantly less space and their generation is fast enough, so as to not affect the performance of the servers.
