Performance-focused PHP 5 Hosting

With the release of PHP 5.3, the language continues to evolve as a more secure server-side language, which enables many modern web applications. Our hosting environments are designed to help you leverage PHP frameworks to accelerate the development curve, with full support for model-view-controller (MVC) frameworks such as Symfony, Cake (we're going the distance; we're going full speed), Code Igniter and Zend.

As PHP progresses, the language continues to expand its object oriented (OOP) focus with traits and more logical syntax, while also expanding its libraries to accelerate development and improving session security to safeguard user (and server) data. Since PHP is an open language, our Apache servers provide an ideal solution for startups as well as established developers who want a more flexible solution than Microsoft/IIS configurations. By investing in reliable PHP5 hosting, you can benefit from a growing LAMP development community and benefit from compatibility with the latest HTML 5 and CSS 3 standards for both desktop and mobile implementation.


PHP Hosting Solutions for Developers

Whether you are looking for top end managed dedicated PHP servers or high performance VPS for your PHP project, our hosting plans are custom designed to meet the performance needs of your applications:

Even if you're not a skilled web developer, having PHP5 installed can still prove beneficial. Lots of third party web applications use PHP, and little is more frustrating than installing pre-programmed software only to have it fail due to an outdated version of PHP. For example, WordPress blogs and PHPbb forums utilize PHP for almost every aspect of their implementations. Using an old version of PHP might cause these programs to fail to install, work incorrectly, or disable useful features. Why miss out when you don't need to? Don't be left behind, make sure you're getting the most out of your PHP applications with PHP5 Hosting.
