It's 2021 and we are still finding a number of sites using http not HTTPS !

What is the difference https - means "secure", the site is running on a SSL (secure sockets layer) certificate. Which means commication between the web browser used to view and the server hosting the site is encrypted making the data transfer between the two parties secure. Most payment gateways require encrypted communications. Also Google "prefers" secure sites and a number of browsers indicate automatically to site visitors if the site is using secure https: - closed padlock icon in front of site URL.

At NZJoomla we offer a range of SSL certiciates - including the free Letsencrypt certicate for our hosted sites. Contact us now if you are looking for a secure hosted site.

Security Risk?

If your current Joomla install is version 1.5.26 or below - it is out of date and it's security is at risk - YOU SHOULD NOT use it as part of your business tools.

Joomla have now also stopped support for 2.5.X series and hence it's time to upgrade your site if you are running this stream of software on your web site.

If you have a series 3.X version of Joomla running your site, you must ensure it is updated to Joomla 3.9.28 at a minimum as lower levels of Joomla 3.X have a security risks.

Current version of Joomla 3.9.28 / 3.10.2 or 4.0.3

Note: Joomla 3.10 and 4.x were released 17/8/2021 - however these required careful analysis of your web site before upgrading.
3.10.2 - being a stepping stone to Joomla series 4.
Joomla 3.X will be support until September 2023.

Joomla 4 is recommended for new sites where posssible.

As these are a migration not just a straight upgrade.
