Have you updated to Joomla 4?

Only a few Joomla websites are updated to the latest version. Read here why it is important to update to Joomla 4.

Have you updated to Joomla 4?

Although Joomla 4 was launched in August 2021, there are still a lot of Joomla websites that have not yet been updated to the latest version. According to the statistics, 82.6% of all Joomla websites still run on version 3, which will no longer be supported after August 17, 2023. This also applies to security updates, which will soon no longer be released for Joomla. The official message from Joomla's side is therefore to update your website to the latest version as soon as possible.

Why should Joomla be updated?

There are many good reasons to have Joomla updated to the latest version. First of all, security has been increased and security issues have been closed. This means that it has become even more difficult for hackers to take over the website or gain access to your customers' data. 

At the same time, various small errors (bugs) have also been fixed, just as new functions have been added. For example, the built-in search function has been improved and has become more intelligent. Other new functions include the fact that it has become easier to set up and style the emails sent from Joomla, and it has become even easier to work with SEO. 

In addition, you will also experience better performance and loading speed on the website after an update to the latest version. The loading speed is also of significant importance if you want to achieve top positions in Google's search results. 

The above are just some of the most important reasons for updating to Joomla 4. If you do not update, at some point, you will risk that your website no longer works at all with your web hotel because the Joomla site runs with an outdated version of the scripting language PHP, which is behind Joomla. Of course, Joomla 4 also supports the latest versions here.
