Data Compression in Cloud Website Hosting
The cloud internet hosting platform where your cloud website hosting account will be created works by using the revolutionary 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 that a variety of other file systems use, but it's also considerably quicker. The benefits will be significant particularly on compressible content such as website files. Although it may sound illogical, uncompressing data with LZ4 is faster than reading uncompressed info from a hard disk drive, so the performance of each and every website hosted on our servers will be improved. The better and quicker compression rates also allow us to make numerous daily backups of the full content in each web hosting account, so if you delete anything by mistake, the last backup which we have won't be more than several hours old. This is possible because the backups take much less space and their generation is fast enough, to not influence the performance of our servers.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The ZFS file system that runs on the cloud platform where your semi-dedicated hosting account will be created uses a powerful compression algorithm called LZ4. It's one of 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 a lot faster than the same data can be read from a hard drive if it were uncompressed. That way, using LZ4 will accelerate any website that runs on a platform where this algorithm is present. The high performance requires plenty of CPU processing time, that's provided by the numerous clusters working together as part of our platform. What's more, LZ4 allows us to generate several backup copies of your content every day and save them for one month as they'll take a reduced amount of space than regular backups and will be generated much more quickly without loading the servers.
