Data Compression in Website Hosting
The cloud internet hosting platform where your website hosting account is made works by using the advanced ZFS file system. The LZ4 compression method that the aforementioned employs is greater in numerous aspects, and not only does it compress data better than any compression method that some other file systems use, but it is also considerably faster. The gains are significant particularly on compressible content like website files. Although it could sound irrational, uncompressing data with LZ4 is faster than reading uncompressed info from a hard disk drive, so the performance of any website hosted on our servers shall be boosted. The better and quicker compression rates also make it possible for us to make a large number of daily backups of the whole content in each hosting account, so if you delete something by accident, the last backup which we have will not be more than several hours old. This is possible because the backups take considerably less space and their generation is quick enough, to not influence the performance of our servers.
