Data Compression in Website Hosting
The cloud internet hosting platform where your website hosting account is generated uses the impressive ZFS file system. The LZ4 compression method that the latter employs is better in various aspects, and not only does it compress info better than any compression method that a number of other file systems use, but it's also a lot quicker. The benefits are significant especially on compressible content like website files. Even though it could sound unreasonable, uncompressing data with LZ4 is faster than reading uncompressed info from a hard disk drive, so the performance of every Internet site hosted on our servers will be improved. The better and faster compression rates also make it possible for us to make a number of daily backups of the entire content in every single hosting account, so should you delete anything by mistake, the last back-up copy which we have will not be more than a few hours old. This is possible as the backups take considerably less space and their generation is quick enough, so as to not change the performance of our servers.
