ANN ARBOR, Mich., July 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- High performance web hosting provider A2 Hosting first made a name for themselves back in 2004 by being one of the first hosts to support PHP 5. With the recent Beta release of PHP 7, history repeats itself with A2 Hosting being one of the first providers to offer PHP 7 Hosting.
PHP 7 is available on A2 Hosting's Turbo Web Hosting service. Speed tests show A2 Hosting's Turbo Servers load pages up to 20X faster than competing services. Unlike other hosts not allowing caching solutions on shared servers, each Turbo customer gets A2 Hosting's A2 Optimized Site Accelerator. This exclusive cPanel plugin further speeds up page loads with user-friendly caching for applications from a single interface.
With speed being a key focal point of PHP 7, the PHP team decided to move past PHP 6 which had different objectives. It appears the PHP developers have been successful so far in meeting their performance goals. Tests show PHP 7 performs 100%, and even faster in some tests, than PHP 5.6. This is not surprising as PHP 7 is based on the PHPNG (PHP Next-Gen) project, designed to speed up PHP applications.
Users interested in using PHP 7 because of its performance gains will discover A2 Hosting and their Turbo servers are the perfect location for their development. That's because A2 Hosting's goal themselves is to offer the fastest hosting possible while living up to their tagline "Our Speed. Your Success."
"In addition to offering the fastest hosting possible, our other goal is to make sure we stay up to date on the latest versions of the most popular development software," commented A2 Hosting's Marketing Manager Brad Litwin. "It just so happens the release of PHP 7 meets both of these goals."
While PHP 7 is a development preview not quite ready for production use and there can be no guarantee of specific application compatibility as of yet, a full PHP 7 release is scheduled for November. With A2 Hosting's PHP Switcher, moving between multiple PHP versions including PHP 5.1-5.6 and of course PHP 7 is particularly easy. Customers can try A2 Hosting's PHP 7 Hosting completely risk-free with their Anytime Money Back Guarantee.
