No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Shared Hosting
The integrity of the data which you upload to your new shared hosting account will be guaranteed by the ZFS file system which we make use of on our cloud platform. Most of the web hosting service providers, including our firm, use multiple hard disks to store content and considering that the drives work in a RAID, the exact same information is synchronized between the drives at all times. If a file on a drive gets corrupted for some reason, however, it is very likely that it will be duplicated on the other drives as other file systems do not include special checks for this. In contrast to them, ZFS uses a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for every single file. If a file gets damaged, its checksum will not match what ZFS has as a record for it, which means that the damaged copy shall be replaced with a good one from a different hard disk. As this happens in real time, there is no possibility for any of your files to ever be corrupted.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will not have to deal with any kind of silent data corruption issues in case you buy one of our semi-dedicated server plans as the ZFS file system that we employ on our cloud hosting platform uses checksums in order to guarantee that all the files are undamaged all the time. A checksum is a unique digital fingerprint that is allotted to each and every file stored on a server. As we store all content on a number of drives at the same time, the same file uses the same checksum on all the drives and what ZFS does is that it compares the checksums between the different drives right away. If 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 damaged copy to be synchronized on the remaining drives. ZFS is the only file system on the market which uses checksums, which makes it much more dependable than other file systems which cannot identify silent data corruption and copy bad files across hard drives.
