PHP 5.5 Now Available On The Tsohost Cloud

Posted 20th May, 2014 by Aliysa

We’re delighted to announce that PHP 5.5 is now fully supported on our shared Cloud Web Hosting.

Along with PHP 5.5 the Tsohost Cloud supports a series of PHP versions including 5.2, 5.3 and 5.4. As default we set all new Tsohost cloud hosting packages to run php 5.3 - this can easily be changed. The Cloud has a neat feature that allows you to switch the PHP version you’re running simply by selecting your preferred version from a drop down menu.

PHP 5.5 version update - What’s new?

This version update brings about a handful of new features and bug fixes, the most notable being:

  • The enhancement of arrays and iterators so that you can write nicer loops
  • The introduction of the 'finally' keyword, meaning your code can always free up resources when it's done
  • The introduction of an API that makes it easier to hash passwords securely
  • Performance improvements gained from OPcache
  • Support for Windows XP and 2003 has been dropped
