There may be plausible reasons for you to stick to an older version of TYPO3. Maybe your site is still delivering all the conversions you’re desiring? You just have to make sure to comply with current laws and regulations. With TYPO3 GmbH’s Extended Long Term Support, you’ll make sure that your website is fully covered maintenance-wise and provided with the latest updates.
Being a free open source software solution, TYPO3’s source code is available to everyone. The TYPO3 community ensures regular plannable releases and upgrade cycles, which is ideal for large corporate users. Within every major version of TYPO3, there is an LTS (long-term support) version that receives maintenance and security updates by our dedicated community. This is guaranteed for three years. After this time, support runs out.
Once the long-term support is over, you are faced with two options: Either you update your outdated TYPO3 version to a newer one, or you opt for the prolonged support provided by TYPO3 GmbH. Since this support is extending the usual community-driven support, it’s called Extended Long Term Support (ELTS).
If you want to make sure that TYPO3 website is operating at the highest possible quality, Extended Long Term Support is crucial for many reasons. Probably the most important one is your website’s security. As a matter of fact, running outdated software can get you in trouble with the law: Since it makes your site vulnerable to any security breaches, a lot of countries legally require organizations to run supported software. Of course you don’t want to expose your website and users to malware and intrusion. Therefore, opting for ELTS is a wise decision. Currently ELTS is available for TYPO3 v6.2, 7.6, and 8.7.
