For cpanel in a shared hosting service, can I download backups in tar.xz format?

    The default format is "gz", which is actually pretty large. Is it possible to have xz format enabled? This would have a much smaller backup size.

    Cpanel has no feature to change the format at this time. I checked over at and there was one request for a different format but it has been archived meaning its not one that is being considered.
