No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Shared Hosting
The integrity of the data which you upload to your new shared hosting account will be ensured by the ZFS file system that we work with on our cloud platform. Most of the hosting providers, like our firm, use multiple hard drives to store content and because the drives work in a RAID, the same info is synchronized between the drives all the time. If a file on a drive gets corrupted for reasons unknown, however, it's very likely that it will be reproduced on the other drives since other file systems do not offer special checks for this. In contrast to them, ZFS employs a digital fingerprint, or a checksum, for each file. If a file gets corrupted, its checksum will not match what ZFS has as a record for it, which means that the bad copy will be substituted with a good one from a different hard disk drive. As this happens instantly, there is no risk for any of your files to ever get damaged.
No Data Corruption & Data Integrity in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will not experience any silent data corruption issues should you obtain one of our semi-dedicated server plans because the ZFS file system that we take advantage of on our cloud hosting platform uses checksums to guarantee that all the files are undamaged all the time. A checksum is a unique digital fingerprint which 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 of 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 should be, it replaces that file with a healthy copy right away, avoiding any chance of the bad copy to be synchronized on the other hard disks. ZFS is the sole file system you will find which uses checksums, which makes it much more reliable than other file systems that are not able to detect silent data corruption and copy bad files across drives.
