    Magento 2 continues to prove the power of the leading e-commerce platform in the e-commerce with the radicaly increase of active store's number. Users of Magento 1.8 ànd 1.9, the last versions of Magento 1.x have trend to upgrade magento 2 to update new features, new extensions for online business. Upgrade magento 1.8 to 2.0 is smart e-commerce solution to upgrade database (products, customers, orders, categories, taxes, product reviews, product URLs, currency) from old version to Magento 2. The strongest point of the solution is automated migration between magento 1.8 and magento 2, so it limits errors of loosing data.

    Regularly upgrade Magento webshop brings you not only the newest features, but also security fixes, which is highly important for your Magento store’s safety. Not updating your Magento can result in not only a bad performance, but it makes your shop an easy target for hackers.

    Before you start upgrade magento 1.8 to 2:
    - Make sure you have a recent and clean backup. Both a file and database backup. In case anything goes wrong while updating, you can restore your data easily. More information about making backups can be found in the article Historical backups.
    - Check the versions release notes to see what changes have been made.
    - Choose a quiet moment to update your Magento. Preferably when there’s hardly any traffic on your site.
    - Test an update on a staging environment to make sure all aspects of your shop are compatible with the newest version.

    You can follow Magento migration guidee to upgrade magento 1.8 to 2.0 automatically
