Hostinger , a fast-growing global hosting services company, has updated PHP to the newest 7.4 version. This version will enable users to get faster WordPress or other CMS execution that will have a significant effect on page speed. 

“From day one of Hostinger, we made a promise to provide fast web hosting services at affordable prices. We are delivering this promise once again with the launch of PHP 7.4“, said Arnas Stuopelis, Chairman of web hosting provider Hostinger. “By being among the first ones hosting providers who adopted PHP 7.4 technology, we are giving our customers the best available tools to implement their web ideas.”

Various characteristics of PHP 7.4 leads to the main result: better speed. Programmers will be able to clean their PHP code fundamentally with the use of Arrow functions. Type hinting is not a new feature. But PHP 7.4 version brings it to another level by adding support for first-class property type declarations. It means that class variables can be type hinted.

Another update is the WeakReferences that enable to retain a reference to an object without preventing the object from being destroyed. The preloading process will boost the speed as well. It can achieve a significant performance boost by almost completely eliminating the overhead of PHP code recompilation.

WordPress websites will benefit the most out of this improvement. People can expect faster execution times and less memory usage when using PHP 7.4 instead of previous versions. According to WordPress stats , more than third WordPress websites use versions that are lower than 7.0.  Most of the wordpress development services like collectiveray also use the latest version of WP, which will help convert visitors to sales, at a faster rate.

Terminator: Resistance Review

This game kicks ass! To be completely honest, I wasn’t really expecting much from this game since well, it’s a game based on a movie and we all know how great those games always are… Terminator: Resistance captures the one thing movie games usually fail every time, the look, feel and atmosphere of the movie they are based upon or in this case the 3-minute clip at the start of Terminator 2: Judgement Day. I’ve always like that sequence since it was an amazing sequence and set the stakes for what was bound to happen.
