Data Compression in Shared Web Hosting
The compression algorithm which we work with on the cloud hosting platform where your new shared web hosting account shall be created is known as LZ4 and it is applied by the state-of-the-art ZFS file system that powers the platform. The algorithm is a lot better than the ones other file systems work with since its compression ratio is a lot higher and it processes data considerably faster. The speed is most noticeable when content is being uncompressed since this happens faster than information can be read from a hard disk. Therefore, LZ4 improves the performance of each and every site stored on a server that uses this algorithm. We use LZ4 in one more way - its speed and compression ratio make it possible for us to generate a number of daily backup copies of the entire content of all accounts and keep them for one month. Not only do these backups take less space, but their generation will not slow the servers down like it can often happen with some other file systems.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account from our firm, you will be able to experience the advantages of LZ4 - the powerful compression algorithm used by the ZFS file system that is behind our advanced cloud Internet hosting platform. What distinguishes LZ4 from all the other algorithms out there is that it has an improved compression ratio and it is considerably quicker, in particular when it comes to uncompressing website content. It does that even quicker than uncompressed information can be read from a hard disk drive, so your websites will perform faster. The higher speed is at the expense of using plenty of CPU processing time, which is not an issue for our platform since it consists of numerous clusters working together. Together with the superior performance, you'll have multiple daily backup copies at your disposal, so you will be able to restore any deleted content with several clicks. The backup copies are available for an entire month and we can afford to keep them since they need a lot less space than standard backups.
