Upgrades will provide the best site security, SEO capability, fresh design opportunities, faster site performance and more functional capabilities.

Joomla is now in version 3.X. It has been actively developed and upgraded over the years and is basically in its fifth major revision since 2005. All versions of Joomla prior to 2.5 are end-of-life and should be upgraded/migrated to Joomla 3.X as soon as possible.

Joomla 1.0, 1.5, 1.6 and 1.7 sites will have no updates, bug fixes, and most importantly, security patches. Because there are no patches, and these codebases are old, hackers are exploiting these end of life sites and publishing the tactics for others to hack as well.

We “adopt” many Joomla websites which are in need of support services. So many sites are built wrong, in need of upgrade, using obsolete extensions, are hosted in less than desirable places and so much more. And most of these sites were initially built by so called “experts”.
