Extended Support

Improve ROI and get more out of your web projects.
Three years of extended support, planning time, and peace of mind.

Support guaranteed

ELTS is currently available for TYPO3 CMS versions 6.2 and 7.6. Since free community support for these versions has expired, without ELTS, you risk the following:

  • No security protection

  • Potential compatibility problems

  • Legal uncertainty and risk

  • No official updates

Stay secure and up-to-date with ELTS!

  • Improved ROI and cost savings

  • Extended security

  • Extended compatibility

  • Extended project life cycle

  • 3-year availability

  • IT security-law compliance

  • Expanded upgrade window

  • 6-year planning horizon

With TYPO3 CMS, you made the right technology choice.

Now benefit from a total of 6 years of support per major version:

  • 3 years of free support by the TYPO3 core team and the community.

  • 3 further years of vendor support with ELTS by TYPO3 GmbH. Extended Long Term Support (ELTS) prolongs security and compliance support for your expired LTS version, and keeps you legally compliant and up-to-date.

Improved ROI for your web projects

  • Invest three more years of development budget into value-generating features.

  • Deliver more for your investment into your proven systems.

  • Improved resource management, with regular, plannable release and upgrade cycles.

Longer value-generation lifecycle

  • Three-year extended planning window for upgrades.

  • Stability of upgrade process and timing benefits organizations with long decision cycles.

  • More time and flexibility to plan and execute upgrades right.

Peace of mind: legal compliance, extended security and compatibility

  • Eliminate legal exposure: EU (and other) law requires running supported software.

  • Security protection against known security vectors. Reduced exposure to critical vulnerabilities and risks.

  • Guaranteed browser compatibility.

Additional Information


An instance can be a set of 3+n TYPO3 installations (Live, Live Failover, Staging, Development per Developer) as long as the scope of the installation remains the same. An instance can also be a single TYPO3 installation running multiple websites for multiple clients.
Here are some examples:

  • You have a team of 12 developers all working on a single project that runs within a single TYPO3 installation = 1 instance.

  • You have a project with a development server, a staging server and 200 frontend servers all serving the same content = 1 instance.

  • You have a single TYPO3 installation running 12 microsites for 12 clients = 1 instance.

  • You have 12 microsites for one client and every microsite is running on its own TYPO3 installation = 12 instances.

  • You have 5 clients and run 3 different websites per client, each with their own TYPO3 installations = 15 instances.

In case you are unsure about your setup, contact us and we will help you decide what best fits your case.


The total runtime of an ELTS version has a fixed time frame of 3 years. The start date of an ELTS version depends on the end date of an LTS version and thus offers a seamless transition of support.
Each bookable ELTS period has a fixed runtime of one year. They can also be combined for 2 years (10% discount) and 3 years (15% discount).

The following list shows you which runtimes are available for the chosen ELTS version.
