Joomla Site Migration and Upgrade

UMS WDS 1140x360 1

Migrating a Joomla Site 

If you want help with your Joomla site migration, contact us, we can help. We have been migrating and upgrading Joomla sites since 2005. We know Joomla sites backwards and forwards.

Migrating a Joomla site begins with cool and confident planning. If you are a skilled Joomla Developer, it can be a straightforward project, but if you don't have the time or just want a pro to do it, please contact us for a quote.  Our team will get back to you with an estimate in a few days.

We take the time to study and analyze EVERY site that asks for a quote, so some cases might take up to a week.

How much does it cost to migrate a Joomla site?

Because each site us unique, cost varies with it's complexity. Small and simple sites (with few and simple extensions) may cost $300-475. Sites of medium complexity may cost between $500-775. Big and complex sites (sites with e-commerce, community, and or CCK extensions) start at $1000.

Was your site built with Joomla 2.5?

End of life, you NEED to upgrade your Joomla 2.5 site

12/10/2014 

Last December, the Joomla! Project released version 2.5.28. It is the final scheduled release of the 2.5 series.

As part of Joomla's development strategy, last December we faced the end of support for a popular Joomla release. Joomla 2.5 did indeed serve us well and we are grateful toward the awesome team that developed and maintained it during the last few years.

Joomla 2.5 support ended December 31stEnd of support means that the Joomla! Project will no longer provide bug fixes, features, or security updates.

Your 2.5 site may already be vulnerable

Don't panic. If you have a site built with Joomla 2.5, you are in the same boat as tens of thousands of site owners. You need to do 2 things:

    1. Make sure you have the latest update of Joomla (2.5.28). 
    2. You need to start planning the migration of your site to Joomla 3.x. Its not a matter of if, its a matter of when.

Why migrate your site from Joomla 2.5 to Joomla 3.x?

We cannot explain this better than the good folks from Joomla.org. Read their reasons HERE. In short: you NEED to upgrade your site!

Recent Testimonials

I recently choose Joomlashack to upgrade my site to Joomla 3. Having previously used Joomlashack University to learn how create my site, and loved it, I had no hesitancy in turning to them again. I highly recommend them for the professional way they assessed what was needed and implemented the plan. Any concerns I had were resolved quickly. I can't praise the staff enough for the polite and efficient way they did the work needed. Thanks to you all.

My Joomla site had to upgraded to the newer version and I had to let the guys at Joomlashack work their magic for me. From start to finish, I was updated on the status of the site and if I thought too many hours had gone by without hearing anything, I would send them a message and voila! - a reply was forthcoming. I like the communication being so open and quick. The end result of the upgrade was that nothing was lost or non-functioning. The upgrade has given me more options for extensions and easier access to install them. Pretty much, Joomlashack gets all my "thumbs up" for their good work. Thank you, guys!

Thank you Joomlashack for the professional and courteous way you helped me upgrade my site. Letting your team handle my upgrade was one of the best decisions I have made in a long time. I would recommend your service for anyone who has more to do than they have time, as I was able to concentrate on other business issues while your folk worked their magic. Thanks again!

June 12,2015 David Daniel Area Agency on Aging of West Alabama

I was very happy with the Upgrade Service provided by Joomlashack. The service team was very responsive, clear in communication, and made the process very simple. As we upgraded the site to Joomla 3.x, we also elected to switch to a Joomla template, and the upgrade service adapted our site to look very similar to its previous appearance. I had some concerns after the fact about a certain page, and again, the service team promptly responded, tested, and assured me that it was rendering properly. I would recommend Joomlashack’s Upgrade service without reservation.

Trust. Competence. Reliability. These are important characteristics in business and frankly; rarely experienced.
We are a small business that does not have a full time web administrator to stay on top of Joomla! migrations. We have done a migration from 1.x to 2.x and it was a long, grueling, nail-biting process. We got hacked in 1.x and we got hacked again in 2.x. We had to spend days finding the files and deleting them before our host provider would put us back on line. We knew it was TIME, well PAST TIME to get up to date on Joomla! But oh no... not another migration. We have used templates with Joomlashack and have always found the support top notch, so we took a chance.
IT WAS WORTH EVERY PENNY SPENT. We didn't have to work out details with php versions and extension compatibility or trying to remember "how do we get SEO friendly URL's again?". We didn't have long days and nights, holding our breath, searching the web to remind us of why some things were not working right, bla bla bla. We just handed it over to the experts and they handed it back, like nothing ever happened.
As I stated at the beginning: Trust. Competence. Reliability. Joomlashack has earned our trust in spades and shown us competence and reliability rarely seen.

Getting our website updated to the newest version of Joomla had been weighing heavily on me for many months. Unfortunately I was having trouble finding the time in my schedule to do it and was worried about the security of our non-profit’s website. I received an email from Joomlashack with information about their migration service and decided to ask for a quote. While it was an expense that we were not expecting, I feel that it was worth it in the long run. They accomplished this migration very quickly and addressed and fixed everything I asked for after the initial setup. They responded to each request from me very quickly and they were friendly and helpful. Our website is now running the current version of Joomla, everything works smoothly and correctly, and it still maintains the original look and feel. I would definitely recommend Joomlashack for anyone considering having a third party help them with migrating their site from an old version of Joomla.

Joomlashack completed a difficult Joomla migration for us whilst remaining responsive and patient in the face of many demands. Thanks guys, I really appreciate your assistance.

Joomla Hosting Reviews

We want to help you find the right Hosting Provider.

At Joomlashack's support dept, have heard every hosting horror story you can think of -- web hosts with complicated installations, Joomla-ignorant customer support, price gauging, security breaches, lost customer data, and more.

Picking the right Joomla hosting provider is critical for your peace of mind, your site's security, and up-time.

What makes a Hosting Provider GREAT for Joomla?

"A great Joomla hosting provider is one that has optimized its user interface and configured its servers so that Joomla can be easily and quickly installed, run, updated, and maintained."

"A great Joomla web host will have specially trained support personnel that understand how Joomla is installed, how it is meant to run, what can cause problems, and how can those be fixed."

How do we review a hosting company? Simple but tough criteria:

  1. Reliability - Trust - Confidence - Longevity
  2. Joomla Server Configuration Optimization + Ease of Use
  3. Joomla-Proficient Support Personnel
