getButterfly Logo getButterfly code wrangling since 2005


As I’ve moved from HostGator to a European-based hosting provider several months ago, I decided to improve my hosting features. This is what I currently want. I have nothing so far.

This is my hosting wish list for 2016 (I believe I’m reasonable enough):

  • Apache 2.4.18 (with mod_http2 built in // mod_http2 is the renamed mod_h2 module)
  • HTTP/2
  • nginx 1.8+
  • MySQL 5.5 or higher
  • InnoDB engine as default database engine
  • PHP 5.6.19
  • PHP 7.0.4
  • Any caching engine (memcached, APC, XCache)
  • DNSSEC support
  • Integrated CloudFlare support
  • support

I’ve been checking out some VPS packages, but nothing jumped up. What can you recommend with at least PHP 7 and what’s your wish list?
