SOUTHFIELD, Mich., Dec. 4, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - Nexcess, a leading provider of performance-optimized Magento, WordPress, and ExpressionEngine hosting, has announced that all Nexcess managed hosting products will support PHP 7 immediately following its final release, which is scheduled for November 12, 2015. PHP 7 brings numerous new features to PHP, the most prominent of which is substantial performance improvements.

Nexcess provides managed hosting for some of the web's most popular eCommerce and publishing solutions -- most of which are based on PHP. The upgrade to PHP 7 will bring immediate and substantial performance improvements to websites, eCommerce stores, and forums that are PHP 7 compatible.

PHP 7 will be available across Nexcess' range of managed hosting products, including shared hosting, dedicated server hosting, and enterprise-grade custom clusters.

"Our managed hosting platform is engineered to maximize performance for specific PHP applications like Magento and WordPress, but PHP itself has never been as fast as we'd have liked. We're looking forward to being able to make the much faster PHP 7 available to our clients," commented Chris Wells, President and CEO of Nexcess, "In our testing of PHP 7, we've seen across-the-board performance improvements that will make a real-world difference to site owners and eCommerce merchants."

Performance optimization has always been essential to creating a positive experience for web users and online shoppers. There is a correlation between site performance and revenue for all types of sites. As mobile devices become the preferred method of accessing the web, performance has become even more important.

PHP 7 will allow Nexcess to enhance the performance of PHP-based applications like WordPress and Magento to an even greater extent, empowering Nexcess hosting clients to maximize the potential of their hosting infrastructure and build faster websites and more responsive web applications.
