     Joomla Upgrade Services
Joomla content management system is the most preferred CMS among web developers and users alike. Creative and user interactive websites can be easily designed using Joomla CMS. Dynamic forms to capture user data and feedback, modules for integrating social media sites using buttons and much more makes Joomla a powerful CMS. Upgrading your site ensures that you're always running the most current version of Joomla out there. Normally the clients will always ask if they should have upgraded their Joomla site periodically from 1.0, 2.5 to 3.0 site or if we can do the upgrade for them.

The one and only reason for Joomla upgrade is that, the older your version is, security issues which will increase more and that is from any hackers or threat side, so the first thing you need to do is to update your Joomla 1.5 website to the latest security update. The new upgrade of Joomla will help you to take new advantages features which makes your websites look more dynamics.

Major Difference Between Joomla 1.5 ,2.5 to 3.0
Joomla 1.5

Support for Joomla 1.5 ended in April of 2012 and we continued to support it unofficially until the end of 2012 for medium to high.

However there will be no ongoing support from the Joomla development team and the site will no longer be considered secure.

Joomla! 1.5 features:

 Site Attraction.
 Easy Navigation.
 Consumer Designing.
 Profit represents the ultimate goal.

 Completely database driven site engines.
 News, products, or services sections fully editable and manageable.
 Runs on Linux, FreeBSD, MacOSX server, Solaris, and AIX.

So the main drawback is the security and potential for some serious hacking, server compatibility , the hosting companies can and do upgrade PHP and MySQL without notice or consideration as it does not support latest version of PHP and MySql. Joomla 2.5
