Data Compression in Shared Website Hosting
The cloud hosting platform where your shared website hosting account shall be generated uses the cutting-edge ZFS file system. The LZ4 compression method that the aforementioned uses is superior in lots of aspects, and not only does it compress information better than any compression method that many other file systems use, but it's also a lot faster. The benefits can be significant especially on compressible content which includes website files. Despite the fact that it may sound unreasonable, uncompressing data with LZ4 is faster than reading uncompressed info from a hard drive, so the performance of each and every site hosted on our servers will be improved. The better and faster compression rates also make it possible for us to make multiple daily backups of the entire content in each Internet hosting account, so in the event you delete something by mistake, the last back-up copy that we have won't be more than several hours old. This is possible because the backups take a lot less space and their generation is quick enough, to not change the performance of our servers.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Servers
Your semi-dedicated server account shall be created on a cloud platform that is run on the innovative ZFS file system. The latter uses a compression algorithm named LZ4, that's a lot better than various other algorithms in terms of compression ratio and speed. The gain is noticeable especially when data is being uncompressed and not only is LZ4 a lot faster than other algorithms, but it is also quicker in uncompressing data than a system is in reading from a hard disk. This is why sites running on a platform which employs LZ4 compression perform better as the algorithm is most effective when it processes compressible data i.e. site content. An additional advantage of using LZ4 is that the backup copies of the semi-dedicated accounts which we keep take a lot less space and they are generated faster, which enables us to keep several daily backups of your files and databases.
