Data Compression in Website Hosting
The cloud hosting platform where your website hosting account will be generated uses the advanced ZFS file system. The LZ4 compression method which the latter employs is greater in a number of aspects, and not only does it compress data better than any compression method which other file systems use, but it's also a lot faster. The benefits may be significant particularly on compressible content such as website files. Even though it could sound illogical, uncompressing data with LZ4 is quicker than reading uncompressed info from a hard disk drive, so the performance of any Internet site hosted on our servers shall be enhanced. The better and quicker compression rates also allow us to produce a large number of daily backups of the whole content in each and every web hosting account, so if you delete something by accident, the last back-up copy that we have won't be more than a couple of hours old. This is possible as the backups take considerably less space and their generation is quick enough, to not affect the performance of the servers.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Servers
The ZFS file system that runs on the cloud platform where your semi-dedicated server account will be created uses a powerful compression algorithm called LZ4. It is among the best algorithms out there and certainly the best one when it comes to compressing and uncompressing web content, as its ratio is very high and it can uncompress data quicker than the same data can be read from a hard drive if it were uncompressed. That way, using LZ4 will quicken every website that runs on a platform where this algorithm is enabled. This high performance requires a lot of CPU processing time, that's provided by the multitude of clusters working together as part of our platform. In addition to that, LZ4 enables us to generate several backups of your content every day and keep them for a month as they'll take a reduced amount of space than regular backups and will be generated considerably faster without loading the servers.
