Afaik, WebWiz only offers PHP 32 bits, not yet 64 bits. Is that something that might be change in the near future?

We did trial 64-bit at the start of this year but found that it broke many customers websites.

The 32-bit version of PHP offers better compatibility, better resource usage and and due to the reduced memory pointers better performance. 

You would only need the 64-bit version of PHP if your website required more than 2 GB of memory to run PHP. If your website did require 2 GB of memory then a Dedicated Server would be a better option where you can have the 64-bit version of PHP installed.

Each website runs PHP in multiple threads for additional performance. Each of those threads would need to use more than 2 GB of RAM before it would be necessary to use the 64-bit versions of PHP.
