Data Compression in Web Hosting
The cloud internet hosting platform where your web hosting account shall be made employs the reliable ZFS file system. The LZ4 compression method which the aforementioned uses is superior in many aspects, and not only does it compress data better than any compression method that similar file systems use, but it is also a lot faster. The gains will be significant especially on compressible content which includes website files. Although it may sound irrational, uncompressing data with LZ4 is quicker than reading uncompressed data from a hard drive, so the performance of every site hosted on our servers shall be enhanced. The better and faster compression rates also make it possible for us to produce a large number of daily backups of the full content in each and every hosting account, so in the event you delete anything by accident, the last backup that we have won't be more than several hours old. This is possible as the backups take considerably less space and their generation is fast enough, so as to not affect the performance of the servers.
