Data Compression in Shared Hosting
The cloud hosting platform where your shared hosting account shall be created uses the outstanding ZFS file system. The LZ4 compression method that the latter employs is superior in lots of aspects, and not only does it compress information better than any compression method that a variety of other file systems use, but it's also much faster. The gains are significant in particular on compressible content like website files. Although it may sound irrational, uncompressing data with LZ4 is quicker than reading uncompressed info from a hard disk drive, so the performance of each site hosted on our servers will be upgraded. The better and faster compression rates also allow us to generate multiple daily backups of the full content in every single web hosting account, so if you delete something by mistake, the last backup that we have won't be more than a few hours old. This can be done as the backups take much less space and their generation is quick enough, to not affect the performance of the servers.
