What are the Microsoft FrontPage Extensions? What are they used for?
FrontPage Extensions are system files which should be present on a web server in order for specific features of websites made with Microsoft FrontPage to operate properly. In case these files aren't on the server, the websites will still work, but with restricted functionality and they may display errors every now and then. In addition, when your website hosting provider has FrontPage Extensions on their servers, you'll be able to publish your content straight from the application, eliminating the necessity to use any third-party FTP client to upload files. All that you need to do is to enter you website hosting account FTP information in the FrontPage settings and the program will do the rest. Future updates can be done in exactly the same way, which makes FrontPage an excellent choice for people with minimum or no experience.
FrontPage Extensions in Shared Hosting
We support FrontPage Extensions with each and every shared hosting
package that we offer and unlike the majority of website hosting service providers nowadays, we do not plan to discontinue this particularfeature, so it's up to you whether you'll start and maintain your web presence using FrontPage or some other web design software. In fact, in case you are moving an active site to our servers, chances are that you have spent money, time and efforts and we would not want all of that to go in vain. You will be able to enable FrontPage Extensions individually for each and every domain or subdomain through the Hepsia Control Panel, and it will not be a problem to have the main website created with FrontPage and work with a script app in a subdomain for a discussion forum, for instance - the two won't conflict in the slightest. When you decide that you would like to switch to a different platform, you'll be able to deactivate FrontPage Extensions with only a few clicks.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server
plan from our company, you are able to employ FrontPage to build your site, since FrontPage Extensions are installed on the cloud platform where your website hosting account will be created. Activating and deactivating the feature is done with several clicks and per domain or subdomain through your Hepsia Control Panel that you will get to control the account, so you're able to easily have a FrontPage main site and a blog or a community forum script inside a subdomain without problems. Our system will include all of the system files required for such a website automatically within the selected folder. Lots of website hosting providers nowadays stop the support for FrontPage Extensions, yet we would rather leave this choice to you, rather than making you switch the website design app that you use and throw away all of the funds and efforts that you've invested throughout the years to build and maintain your site.
