After more than 10 years of PHP5, PHP is coming out with the latest release PHP7.
What is going to change and what can you take into account?
One of the points of PHP has always been speed, in the latest release this problem has been addressed quite nicely. The speed of PHP Hosting 7 is namely 2 times faster. This is of course good news for customers who use Wordpress, Drupal and Joomla.The current Zend engine has been replaced by the PHP next generation Engine, this has improved the speed so much.

To givean example of the numbers, an average Wordpress page needed 9.4 billion cpu instructions to load the page. This has now been reduced to 2.6 billion. There is also an actual difference in the amount of memory used by the server. In addition, 64 bit is now also consistently supported. Many fatal errors are now also converted to exceptions, which means that many error messages are handled differently.
There has also been a big cleanup and many SAPIs and extensions that were deprecated have been removed.

PHP7 is now also active at MijnHostingPartner.nl and can be selected under extensions. How to do this you can read in this article:

We recommend to test your existing sites / applications with this first, for example on a subdomain. If a part of your site does not work then it is easier to troubleshoot and your current site is not at risk.
There is no denying that the language has made tremendous growth. In the years the language has been in use it has grown to become one of the most widely used languages. Thanks in part to popular CMS systems like Wordpress that are written entirely in PHP, the language has grown so much, in addition to being popular with developers. Wordpress makes it easy for starters or small businesses to put together a website without necessarily having to code.

We are excited about the many changes and assume that this is a big step forward. You will hopefully be excited as well.
