Data Compression in Shared Hosting
The cloud hosting platform where your shared hosting account is made employs the reliable ZFS file system. The LZ4 compression method which the latter uses is greater in various aspects, and not only does it compress information better than any compression method that many other file systems use, but it's also a lot faster. The gains may be significant particularly on compressible content which includes website files. Although it could sound unreasonable, uncompressing data with LZ4 is faster than reading uncompressed data from a hard disk, so the performance of any website hosted on our servers shall be better. The better and faster compression rates also allow us to generate a large number of daily backups of the entire content in each hosting account, so if you delete something by accident, the last backup which we have won't be more than a couple of hours old. This is possible because the backups take significantly less space and their generation is quick enough, so as to not change the performance of our servers.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The ZFS file system which runs on the cloud platform where your semi-dedicated hosting account will be created uses a powerful compression algorithm called LZ4. It's among the best algorithms out there and positively 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. This way, using LZ4 will quicken any website that runs on a platform where the algorithm is enabled. The high performance requires lots of CPU processing time, which is provided by the great number of clusters working together as a part of our platform. Furthermore, LZ4 makes it possible for us to generate several backups of your content every day and keep them for one month as they'll take a reduced amount of space than standard backups and will be created much quicker without loading the servers.
