Do You Provide HHVM Hosting Support?

Updated on November 05, 2017

Yes, at Kinsta we support HHVM hosting for our Google Cloud Plan customers. All our environments come with PHP 7 enabled by default but you can use the My Kinsta dashboard to switch your site to HHVM.

Note that the change will take 5-10 seconds to take place. You will receive a notification at the bottom of the screen as soon as it is done.

Important Notices:

  • Not all themes and plugins support HHVM. Please double-check your website to make sure everything is working as expected. Since HHVM switching works on our test environments as well you may want to consider testing HHVM out there.
  • New Relic does not support HHVM yet so we won’t be able to see backend processes if something is slowing your site.
