More Breathing Space With ELTS

Three years of extended support, planning time, and peace of mind
with the official TYPO3 Extended Long Term Support.

Support guaranteed

Extended Long Term Support (ELTS) is currently available for TYPO3 CMS versions 7.6 and 8.7. Since free community support for these versions has expired, free updates are no longer available. It would help if you either upgrade to a supported version or order ELTS. Otherwise, you risk the following:

  • No security protection
  • Browser compatibility problems
  • Legal compliance issues, for example, GDPR

You can find specific information about ELTS for your TYPO3 version on our detail pages. These detail pages include information on the supported PHP version and updates delivered since LTS ended.

Three more years of ROI

When a new TYPO3 version comes out, regular support lasts three years. It can make business sense for some organizations to put off an expensive upgrade for three more years. Their current website is still generating revenue, or because they need longer to prepare for an upgrade. In the meantime, ELTS extends the life of an unsupported TYPO3 version and guarantees:

  • Security for peace of mind and compliance with IT security laws
  • Ongoing compatibility with modern browsers
  • More time to prepare for an upgrade
  • Six-year planning horizon

It can also deliver cost savings. An upgrade to a new major version costs on average 20% of the initial investment, while a total of six years’ support adds just *€5.100 to your TYPO3 maintenance costs.

(* Price calculated using a three-year Single Plan.)

So your website is still delivering value for your users. However, the TYPO3 roadmap shows that free community support for your TYPO3 version is running out? You may want to put off upgrading to give yourself more time to prepare. Maybe because your organization has a longer planning cycle or because you’d instead add features to your existing website. Whatever your motivation: when community support ends, ELTS can offer three more years of security, compliance, and compatibility.

A total of 6 years support per major version

With ELTS, you can benefit from a total of 6 years of support per major version:

  • Three years of complimentary support by the TYPO3 core team and the community
