Data Compression in Shared Hosting
The cloud hosting platform where your shared hosting account is generated employs the innovative ZFS file system. The LZ4 compression method which the latter employs is greater in a number of aspects, and not only does it compress info better than any compression method which similar file systems use, but it is also faster. The gains will be significant especially on compressible content such as website files. Even though it could sound unreasonable, uncompressing data with LZ4 is faster than reading uncompressed data from a hard disk, so the performance of each and every website hosted on our servers will be enhanced. The better and faster compression rates also make it possible for us to make a large number of daily backups of the full content in each and every web hosting account, so should you delete something by accident, the last backup which we have won't be more than a couple of hours old. This can be done because the backups take significantly less space and their generation is quick enough, to not influence the performance of our servers.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated hosting account from our firm, you can experience the advantages of LZ4 - the powerful compression algorithm employed by the ZFS file system that is behind our advanced cloud Internet hosting platform. What separates LZ4 from all of the other algorithms out there is that it has a better compression ratio and it is considerably quicker, particularly when it comes to uncompressing web content. It does that even faster than uncompressed data can be read from a hard drive, so your Internet sites will perform better. The higher speed comes at the expense of using plenty of CPU processing time, that's not a problem for our platform because it consists of a large number of clusters working together. Along with the better performance, you will also have multiple daily backup copies at your disposal, so you can restore any deleted content with several clicks. The backup copies are available for an entire month and we can afford to keep them because they take considerably less space compared to traditional backups.
