What our client says about us

When I asked a question or brought up a need, the team of Skynet Technologies was always quick to tackle the issue and provide a solution. Our website was built on an out of date, no longer maintained Drupal 6 e-commerce module and we needed to find someone with the technical experience to not only upgrade the website from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7 but to also migrate all our sales data from one commerce module to another. This was a challenging project.

I found them through an online search for Drupal development. I think for me it was their confidence and their responsiveness that sold me on the project. They did a fantastic job upgrading my very outdated Drupal 6 e-commerce website up to Drupal 7 e-commerce website... Read more about John Southard's Testimonial

At first, we were a little reticent to work with a company that had an overseas development team, especially after working with a string of largely unresponsive local programmers. But from the first job, Raj and his team have been an incredible asset to us. They’ve become our go-to developers — and really, an extension of our team for nine years now.

Skynet’s technical knowledge is unmatched — we’ve never given them a challenge they couldn’t solve. They are exceptionally responsive and have a great process. One of our favorite tricks is, at the end of our workday, to provide the Skynet team with a list of things we need done. Then, we find all those tasks checked off by the next morning. These seemingly magical overnight solutions... Read more about Team EG's Testimonial

Drupal 7 is a major version release of the Drupal content management system (CMS), known for its flexibility, scalability, and robust community support.

Drupal 7 reached its end of life on January 5, 2025. This means it no longer receives security updates, bug fixes, or official support from the Drupal community.

Skynet Technologies can assist with Drupal 7 EOL Migration support by providing comprehensive assessment, tailored migration plans, secure data migration, module and theme updates, and ongoing support to ensure a smooth transition to supported Drupal versions like Drupal 9 or 10.

You should upgrade your website from Drupal 7 as soon as possible, given that it will reach its end of life on January 5, 2025, and is no longer receiving security updates or official support.

Drupal 9 is scheduled to reach its end of life in November 2023, two years after its release. Websites using this version should upgrade to Drupal 10 before November. Continuing to run Drupal 9 past its end of life increases the risk of instability and security vulnerabilities.

We recommend migrating to the latest version, Drupal 10, to take advantage of the most up-to-date features, security enhancements, and performance improvements.

The migration process involves several steps:

  • Comprehensive site audit
  • Development of a tailored Drupal migration plan
  • Data and content migration
  • Module and theme upgradation
  • Security enhancements
  • Maintenance and support
  • Performance optimization

Yes, we can replicate your existing design in the updated Drupal version or help you redesign your site for an improved user experience.

Absolutely. We prioritize data integrity and use secure methods to migrate all content, user data, and configurations to the new platform.

After Drupal 7's end-of-life (EOL) support, dedicated service providers like us offer extended support to maintain security and functionality. This includes security patches, updates, and bug fixes to ensure the site remains secure and operational while you plan for an upgrade or migration to the latest Drupal version.

Migrating to Drupal 10 offers numerous benefits, including enhanced security, improved performance, modern features, better user experience, and long-term support.

Drupal 7 was launched on January 5, 2011.

Migrating from Drupal 7 after its End-of-Life (EOL) is essential to ensure security, compliance, and continued support, as Drupal 7 no longer receives security updates or official maintenance.

If a Drupal 7 website is not migrated to Drupal 10 before its end of life, it risks becoming vulnerable to security threats and may face compliance issues due to lack of official support and updates.

Drupal 8 reached its end of life in November 2021 and no longer receives security updates. It's crucial to upgrade sites and applications on version 8 promptly to ensure security and functionality.

Continuing to use Drupal 7 after its EOL date exposes your website to security vulnerabilities and compliance issues. Migrating ensures your site remains secure, functional, and supported.

The duration of the Drupal migration process varies depending on the complexity and size of your site. A detailed assessment will provide a more accurate timeline specific to your needs.

We strive to minimize downtime and disruption. Any necessary downtime will be planned and communicated in advance to ensure minimal impact on your users.

Custom modules and themes will be updated or rewritten to ensure compatibility with the latest Drupal version. We thoroughly test these elements to ensure seamless functionality post-migration.
