Data Compression in Shared Hosting
The cloud web hosting platform where your shared hosting account will be made works by using the advanced ZFS file system. The LZ4 compression method that the aforementioned employs is superior in lots of aspects, and not only does it compress data better than any compression method which some other file systems use, but it is also considerably quicker. The benefits will be significant in particular on compressible content such as website files. While it may sound irrational, uncompressing data with LZ4 is quicker than reading uncompressed data from a hard disk drive, so the performance of each Internet site hosted on our servers will be boosted. The better and faster compression rates also allow us to produce a large number of daily backups of the entire content in each hosting account, so should you delete anything by mistake, the last back-up copy which we have won't be more than a couple of hours old. This is possible as the backups take a lot less space and their generation is fast enough, so as to not change the performance of our servers.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Servers
Your semi-dedicated server account shall be created on a cloud platform that is run on the cutting-edge ZFS file system. The latter uses a compression algorithm called LZ4, that is far better than alternative algorithms regarding compression ratio and speed. The gain is apparent especially when data is being uncompressed and not only is LZ4 quicker than other algorithms, but it is also faster in uncompressing data than a system is in reading from a hard drive. That is why Internet sites running on a platform which employs LZ4 compression perform faster as the algorithm is most efficient when it processes compressible data i.e. web content. An additional advantage of using LZ4 is that the backups of the semi-dedicated accounts that we keep take much less space and they're generated a lot quicker, which enables us to keep a couple of daily backups of all your files and databases.
