No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Shared Website Hosting
The integrity of the data which you upload to your new shared website hosting account will be ensured by the ZFS file system that we use on our cloud platform. Most of the web hosting suppliers, like our company, use multiple hard disk drives to store content and since the drives work in a RAID, the same information is synchronized between the drives all of the time. When a file on a drive becomes corrupted for some reason, however, it is more than likely that it will be duplicated on the other drives because other file systems don't feature special checks for this. Unlike them, ZFS employs a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for every single file. In the event that a file gets damaged, its checksum won't match what ZFS has as a record for it, therefore the damaged copy shall be substituted with a good one from a different drive. As this happens in real time, there's no possibility for any of your files to ever be damaged.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You won't have to deal with any silent data corruption issues should you acquire one of our semi-dedicated hosting packages as the ZFS file system that we use on our cloud hosting platform uses checksums in order to guarantee that all of the files are intact all of the time. A checksum is a unique digital fingerprint which is allotted to each and every file stored on a server. Because we store all content on multiple drives simultaneously, the same file has the same checksum on all drives and what ZFS does is that it compares the checksums between the different drives right away. In case it detects that a file is corrupted and its checksum is different from what it has to be, it replaces that file with a healthy copy right away, avoiding any chance of the bad copy to be synchronized on the rest of the drives. ZFS is the only file system out there that uses checksums, which makes it much more reliable than other file systems which cannot identify silent data corruption and copy bad files across hard drives.
