Data Compression in Web Hosting
The cloud web hosting platform where your web hosting account is made works by using the cutting-edge ZFS file system. The LZ4 compression method that the aforementioned employs is greater in many aspects, and not only does it compress information better than any compression method that a number of other file systems use, but it is also quicker. The benefits can be significant especially on compressible content such as website files. Although it may sound unreasonable, uncompressing data with LZ4 is faster than reading uncompressed info from a hard disk drive, so the performance of each and every site hosted on our servers will be boosted. The better and quicker compression rates also allow us to produce a large number of daily backups of the entire content in each and every Internet hosting account, so in the event you delete something by accident, the last back-up copy that we have will not be more than a few hours old. This can be done because the backups take considerably less space and their generation is fast enough, to not affect the performance of our 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 positively the most efficient one when it comes to compressing and uncompressing website content, as its ratio is very high and it will uncompress data at a faster rate than the same data can be read from a hard drive if it were uncompressed. In this way, using LZ4 will speed up any kind of Internet site that runs on a platform where this algorithm is present. The high performance requires plenty of CPU processing time, which is provided by the numerous clusters working together as a part of our platform. In addition, LZ4 enables us to generate several backup copies of your content every day and have them for one month as they'll take a reduced amount of space than regular backups and will be created considerably faster without loading the servers.
