PHP 7 Hosting Recommendation

I have read a lot that PHP 7 outperforms the previous versions of PHP. I am thinking of moving all my websites to PHP 7 so that my sites enjoy a better loading speeds.

Can anyone recommend me hosting providers that provide PHP 7 support and also help in moving sites to PHP 7

Keep in mind PHP 7 is still very new and a lot of things do not support PHP 7 yet (Ioncube being one of them). A lot of proprietary scripts use Ioncube.

Practically all hosts with CloudLinux will support PHP 7. So use that as a starting point.
As such, though, there is no "best host" only what is best for you.

My cloud host offers PHP5.6 and not 7 as they must feel it's not stable enough to be released to everyone. I am on a VPS server and have control of selecting different PHP and MYSQL versions. I'm running WordPress and Genesis Framework so I won't upgrade if it's available till I hear other peoples reviews on it.

When a web host feels PHP 7 is good enough to release to there customers, they will do it but they don't want a customer to upgrade to it and have major website issues and then you expect them to fix it. They don't want all those support requests.

Before moving to PHP 7 you should make sure that your site is fully compatible with PHP 7 and you are not using any deprecated functions on your PHP code if you are using then your site will break and you will get a lot of errors. And for hosting you can look towards Cloudways they are providing PHP 7 with full support.

To be honest, I think it's safe to use PHP7. However, if you don't need it, I'd not suggest you use it.


Performance on a shared hosting (vps is shared, too) depends on many issues and not just PHP version. Mostly it depends on allocated server resources such as IOPS, RAM, CPU; Operating System, Web Server, server load and a few other things. For example, PHP5.6 on a 5 Mbps IOPS, IGB RAM and 1 CPU core shared hosting can be faster than PHP7 on 1 Mbps IOPS, 1 GB RAM and 1 CPU core hosting. If the both hosting has 1 Mbps IOPS, it is likely that you won't notice any difference.

Put it this way. if you are not a developer then you shouldn't bother understanding any PHHP version. Don't worry, your host will take care of you.
