Nexcess Safe Harbor

Created by experts in Magento hosting, Nexcess Safe Harbor provides malware detection and threat monitoring for your store long after Magento 1 reaches End of Life.

What is Magento 1 End of Life (EOL)

When new versions of software are released, older versions are maintained for a period of time. But after that time is over, it has reached End of Life. At that point, no more feature or security patches are released, which leaves the outdated software vulnerable to threats. Magento 1 reached EOL in June of 2020, which means if you wanted to extend the life of your store as you decide what's next, you'll need to take action to ensure you stay secure.

Ensure your Magento 1 Stores Stay Protected with
Nexcess Safe Harbor


Every night we will automatically scan your store for malware. If any are found, we’ll let you know immediately and help investigate further.

Understand how Nexcess’s security features are working together to keep your store safe. View IPs that have been blocked from your store to protect you.

Test updates and patches on your store in a safe and anonymized Staging environment.

With Safe Harbor we’ll make sure your store runs smoothly. As new vulnerabilities are found, we will create patches and make them available to you.
Who will need Nexcess Safe Harbor?
The Magento 1 EOL event affects any merchant or agency that runs websites on Magento 1. While many are preparing to migrate to Magento 2 or other platforms, some will simply not be ready before Magento 1 reaches EOL to take strategic action.
Safe Harbor enables businesses like yours to keep your sites on Magento 1 after EOL by providing security and technology updates for an extended period of time. So, whether you're still weighing your options, or already have plans to migrate, Safe Harbor can offer the flexibility you need until you're ready to move off of Magento 1.
How much will it cost?
A migration from Magento 1 to Magento 2 can cost anywhere from $50,000 to $100,000. Considering the impact of these costs on merchants, it's easy to understand why many have been hesitant to make their next move.
Safe Harbor provides a cost-effective way for merchants to remain on Magento 1 while you evaluate options. Safe Harbor is estimated to add 35% to your current total hosting cost.
