A few months ago we've decided to bring PHP7 to our customers.
See which massive improvements PHP7 can make to your website:
PHP 7 performance
PHP 7 is based on the PHPNG project (PHP Next-Gen), that was led by Zend to speed up PHP applications. The performance gains realized from PHP 7 are huge! They vary between 25% and 70% on real-world apps, and all of that just from upgrading PHP, without having to change a single line of code!
PHP 7 is 2x faster
Since PHPNG was open sourced and later merged into PHP 7, its performance more than doubled in many cases, and they're continuing to improve it all the time.
To put things in perspective when PHPNG was published, the WordPress homepage required approx. 9.4 billion CPU instructions to execute. As of now "it requires only 2.6 billion" that's 72% less!
How to switch to PHP7
If you're confident enough, log in to your control panel and go to "Php version" and select PHP 7. Otherwise, just get in touch and we will make the change for you.
