Keeping your installation of Joomla up to date allows you to remain protected against security vulnerabilities, fixes bugs, and major upgrades also add new features and functionality. The current version of Joomla is 3.6.0 (check what version you are currently running). We can do the upgrade for you following the proper upgrade procedure. We will also upgrade any out of date extensions that are installed.
If your Joomla installation has already been hacked, upgrading it will not clean it up. In that situation we can clean up the hack and then upgrade it.
If you are currently running Joomla 1.6, 1.7 or 2.5.0-2.5.2 and you are not able to upgrade the website right away then you should disable user registration to prevent the website being hacked through a vulnerability in those versions of Joomla
To insure the upgrade goes right, we first perform a test of the upgrade in a directory on your website, which allows you to test out the upgrade before we apply the upgrade to the production website.
We can usually upgrade your Joomla installation in a few days.
Joomla 1.5 to Joomla 3.6 Migration
Support for Joomla 1.5 has ended. The migration process from Joomla 1.5 to 3.6 is more involved than an upgrade. Your theme and any extensions will need to be compatible with Joomla 3.6 to continue working. You can find about our service for doing a Joomla 1.5 migration here.

$400 USD to upgrade Joomla 1.6.x, 1.7.x, or 2.5.x to 3.6.0.
