Upgrade and relocate Joomla
This involved migrating Joomla from 1.5, along with EasyBlog, removing malware, restoring hacked Joomla source by previous developers, and moving the site to adequate and secure hosting
I highly recommend Andrew. He completely understands what you need, communicates very clearly and delivers what you expect. I had to upgrade Joomla!, upgrade our blogging platform, use a new template and back up and move over my site. There were all sorts of problems and challenges. Andrew knocked off each one, communicated consistently, even over the Holidays. He was also great about "teaching me how to fish".. meaning, he's great at educating. He also documents everything he does so you can refer back to it. I can't imagine having to go through what I did with a non-English speaker especially with the complexity involved. I've done that before and it didn't work out well. I couldn't be happier with the results.
It's extremely important to keep your Joomla installation, and extensions up to date to minimise the risk of your site being compromised, you should also check that you are not using vulnerable extensions by visiting Joomla! Vulnerable Extensions List.
Many Joomla website problems which often result in downtime can be avoided by simply updating your Joomla extensions on a regular basis and your Joomla version whenever they are released along with running daily site backups.
Make sure you are in control of your backups, you have copies stored safely external to your hosting provider and that you know where they are located and how to restore them. Make sure you are in control of your backups, make sure they are encrypted and you have copies stored safely external to your hosting provider and that you know where they are located and how to restore them.
Don't just take your hosting providers word for it, more often than not they back up your entire hosting account and not individual websites and store them in a proprietary system to lock you in to renewals etc.
