Over the last couple of months ResellerBytes has received a lot of requests for PHP 5.4 and we are proud to announce that our servers now support PHP 5.4! Yes. Now our Linux Hosting Servers support PHPv5.4 ?
This means, all our Linux SDH, MDH, BH/RH servers will also have PHPv5.4 along with old PHP versions. We will soon take a call for discontinuing the support for the older PHP versions on our servers (PHP v5.2).
The latest enhancements significantly improve PHP’s elegance, while removing deprecated functionality, resulting in a dramatic optimization of the runtime (up to 20% more speed and memory usage reduction).
FAQ (Some Frequently Asked Questions)
