Data Compression in Website Hosting
The cloud web hosting platform where your website hosting account will be made employs the impressive ZFS file system. The LZ4 compression method that the latter employs is better in many aspects, and not only does it compress information better than any compression method that similar file systems use, but it is also a lot faster. The gains are significant especially on compressible content like website files. Despite the fact that it may sound irrational, uncompressing data with LZ4 is quicker than reading uncompressed data from a hard disk drive, so the performance of every Internet site hosted on our servers will be enhanced. The better and quicker compression rates also allow us to make a number of daily backups of the full content in each hosting account, so should you delete something by mistake, the last backup that we have won't be more than a couple of hours old. This can be done as the backups take considerably less space and their generation is fast enough, so as to not influence the performance of the servers.
