PHP 7 for a faster website

A little about the upgrade in the world of PHP you're website uses
Get PATHFIND hosting
PHP is one of the most popular programming languages and is used by over 80% of all websites, so the chances are good that your website uses it too.

PHP 7 is the first major update in over a decade and provides an impressive increase in performance — it is twice as fast as the current version, 5.6. (Note: PHP 6 was not released, so version 5.6 is followed by version 7).

BENEFITS OF USING PHP 7

PHP7 has many benefits over PHP5.6. While features such as new spaceship and null coalescing operators may only be meaningful to developers, here are the real benefits for your website:

 

  1. Speed – sites load faster, which benefits visitors to your site as well as your Google ranking
  2. Uses less memory – which is particularly useful for mobile friendly applications
  3. Enables more concurrent connections – up to twice as many requests per second

Is your website using PHP 7?
