PHP7

Post by twodogs » Tue May 23, 2017 12:57 am

Does anyone have any firsthand experience with this?

Does anyone know a US based shared hosting company who uses it?

The stew uses php but I personally stopped using it around 5.3 or so. I'm surprised they're all the way up to version 7.

Thanks Mutha. A Slovakian developer is recommending it for maximum speed from their wordpress directory software but won't recommend a shared US host so I think I will pass on both.

A quick search brought up this article https://bluehost.blog/wordpress/php-7-n ... able-7895/

https://www.bluehost.com/ is a pretty famous shared hosting service recommended by the people who make wordpress itself.

Thanks Annotated. Bluehost is certainly a bargain but they have been known to assign blacklisted IP's. I haven't ruled out any EIG company but I would rather work with an independent in hopes of getting better personal service.

In that case you may want to do some reading of reviews for wordpress hosting services where they've tested their support. A lot of times, the comments in those types of articles are as valuable as the articles themselves.

I have been doing that, as well as timing different themes on different browsers and some are painfully slow. I have no interest in maintaining my own server so I am hoping there is someone on here with first hand experience with US based host that doesn't throttle.

Well, if you're willing to pay for it, you can get it.

You could go with a VPS. Liquid Web is pretty good. I have experience with them. Not sure if these plans include PHP 7 or not: https://www.liquidweb.com/vps.html

With a VPS you'll have to learn how to do a few things on your own, but in truth, you can just call them to do any managing of the server.

You can also get their "managed wordpress hosting," which I'm sure is easier to work with, but that's going to be more expensive: https://www.liquidweb.com/managedwordpress/#pricing

I've heard good things about SiteGround. They are not an EIG company.
