No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Website Hosting
The integrity of the data which you upload to your new website hosting account shall be guaranteed by the ZFS file system which we employ on our cloud platform. The vast majority of hosting providers, like our company, use multiple hard disks to keep content and considering that the drives work in a RAID, the exact same information is synchronized between the drives all the time. When a file on a drive is damaged for whatever reason, however, it is more than likely that it will be duplicated on the other drives because alternative file systems don't feature special checks for this. Unlike them, ZFS uses a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for each file. In the event that a file gets corrupted, its checksum will not match what ZFS has as a record for it, which means that the damaged copy shall be swapped with a good one from a different drive. As this happens in real time, there is no risk for any of your files to ever be corrupted.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you get one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will not have to be concerned about silent data corruption because we use ZFS - an advanced file system which monitors all files in real time. Every time you upload a file to your web hosting account, ZFS will assign a unique digital fingerprint to it - the so-called checksum. The file will be synchronized between several SSD drives for redundancy, so if a drive fails, the other ones will take over. ZFS compares the checksum of all copies on the different drives and when it detects a damaged copy, it replaces it with a healthy one from another drive. This is done instantly, so there will be no danger for any part of your content at any time. By comparison, other file systems carry out checks only after a system breakdown, but since they do not use anything similar to the checksums which ZFS uses, they will not detect silently corrupted files, so a corrupted copy may be replicated on the remaining drives as well and you could lose crucial info. As this is not the case with ZFS, we are able to guarantee the integrity of each file you upload no matter what.
