Data Compression in Shared Website Hosting
The cloud web hosting platform where your shared website hosting account shall be generated works by using the advanced ZFS file system. The LZ4 compression method that the latter employs is superior in many aspects, and not only does it compress data better than any compression method that similar file systems use, but it is also faster. The benefits will be significant especially on compressible content which includes website files. While it could sound irrational, uncompressing data with LZ4 is faster than reading uncompressed info from a hard disk, so the performance of each Internet site hosted on our servers shall be better. The better and faster compression rates also make it possible for us to generate multiple daily backups of the full content in each and every hosting account, so in the event you delete something by accident, the last back-up copy which we have won't be more than a few hours old. This is possible because the backups take much less space and their generation is quick enough, so as to not affect the performance of our servers.
