Magento 2 Migration

Support for Magento 1 ended on June 30, 2020. If you haven’t upgraded to Adobe Commerce (Magento), your store is now vulnerable to hackers since Adobe will no longer issue security patches.

Here’s what Adobe said in a recent blog:

If you have a store that continues to run on Magento 1 after June 30, please be aware that from that date forward you have increased responsibility for maintaining your site’s security and PCI DSS compliance. Beyond the EOS date, Adobe will not be responding to any further security issues for Magento 1. Be sure to install Adobe’s final Magento 1 security patch (here). No further patches will be issued by Adobe.

Your only viable option is to move to another platform. This is a complex, time-consuming, and costly process. You risk losing content, breaking internal links, losing ranking and traffic.
You may not need to. Magento 2 has many native features that replace extensions. If you need to keep some, it’s easy to find a Magento 2 version in the new Magento Marketplace.

Yes. But that’s a good thing. You can take stock of your store, remove everything you don’t like and add features you’ve always wanted. Magento makes the process easier by providing the robust, out-of-the-box Luma theme to get you started.
