Is it time 
for your TYPO3 upgrade?

Every 18 months, TYPO3 releases a Long-Term Support (LTS) version that's officially supported for three years. When this support ends, it's time to consider an upgrade. Upgrading regularly helps close security gaps, boosts performance, and enhances user experience. It ensures your website stays technically and legally up to date, offering you a dependable and future-ready content management system.



Why prioritize
a TYPO3 upgrade?

Ensuring Legal Compliance and Data Protection

As a website operator, the Telemedia Act requires you to keep your commercially used website secure and up-to-date. This starts with the currency of your TYPO3 system. By staying up-to-date with the latest technology, your website is shielded from external attacks by hackers and other disruptions.

Each version also works to make the backend even more user-friendly and accessible. Stay up-to-date to save resources and unleash the full potential of these features.

System Security

TYPO3 ensures continuous security updates and regular checks to maintain both technical and legal security. Through TYPO3 Long Term Support (LTS), users benefit from three years of free security updates for each major version. Without these updates, the risk of security vulnerabilities increases due to the growing threat posed by hackers.

Spam Distribution

If attackers take control of your TYPO3 system, they can easily leverage it to send out spam emails in large volumes. Besides causing substantial inconvenience, there's also the risk of being blacklisted. Implementing security measures is vital to protect the integrity of your TYPO3 system.

Infrastructure Collapse

An attack can severely impact server performance, causing individual functions to fail or leading to a complete server shutdown. Providers may also reserve the option for a complete system shutdown, resulting in the unavailability of your data.

Visibility in Search Engines

Search engine algorithms penalize outdated TYPO3 systems and may even remove them entirely from search indexes due to existing security risks. This results in temporary disappearance from search results, leading to decreased visibility for your website.

Unpredictable Expenses

Once a system is hacked, it requires tremendous effort to secure it again. Often, it's necessary to wipe the entire system and rebuild it from scratch. Investing in proactive security measures can save significant costs and time in the long run.

A relaunch is more than just a superficial change to your website—it allows for a fundamental modernization of your digital presence.

Questions about
TYPO3 upgrades?

Not updating your TYPO3 system poses risks such as security vulnerabilities, compatibility issues with plugins/extensions, and decreased performance. This can lead to lower rankings in search engines, device incompatibility, and an overall impaired user experience. Additionally, older PHP versions are often no longer supported by hosts, while new TYPO3 versions are based on current PHP versions, enhancing security and efficiency.


A TYPO3 upgrade involves updating the system and existing features to a newer version within the existing website structure, while a relaunch entails a comprehensive redesign and overhaul of the website, often involving the modernization of key features.

During a relaunch, the content and goals of the website are evaluated and reconceptualized to meet changing requirements. This typically requires a larger investment compared to a simple upgrade, but it provides a significantly improved foundation for future developments and adjustments.

The Extended Long Term Support (ELTS) is a service provided by TYPO3 GmbH, offering security updates to end-users during a transitional period before an upgrade or relaunch.

ELTS provides short-term security updates for older TYPO3 versions, but is a paid service and contributes to keeping the technology outdated. An upgrade requires more initial effort and cost but improves the long-term security, functionality, and future-proofing of your website.

The cost of a TYPO3 upgrade depends on the website complexity, individual customizations, version differences, and extension update efforts. A small to medium upgrade often starts in the low four-figure range, while more extensive or highly customized projects require higher investments. For an accurate cost estimate, we provide individual quotes.
