This month PHP, the widely used website scripting language, released its first major update in the past ten years – PHP 7.

HostAway can now offer PHP 7 for customers wanting to take advantage of the long list of new features, the most notable of which are improved performance and reduced memory use. Below is a graph of the requests per second that each version of PHP is able to handle for a WordPress installation.
