RSS Subscribe PHP 5.3 Cluster Now Available in Shared Hosting Cluster
Posted on 01/10/11 04:36PM

The PHP 5.3 cluster is now fully provisioned in our shared cluster hosting, for clients on our Premium Corporate and Business Class hosting plans. The IP address for this cluster is - you'll see this as a domain template: "Default (Linux PHP5.3) (New)"

This has been running for a few weeks now, and shows great performance and stability. This cluster will soon become the default for new sites. If you use PHP extensively you might like to familiarise yourself with the new service. There are a couple of extra benefits on the 5.3 cluster:


The Alternative PHP Cache (APC) is a free, open, and robust framework for caching and optimizing PHP intermediate code.

This can be turned off on a per site basis using .htaccess -

php_flag apc.cache_by_default Off

Google Page Speed

An Apache module to optimize the resources on a web page.

This can also be turned off on a per-site basis:

ModPagespeed off
