FrontPage Extensions are system files that need to be available on a web server in order for particular features of sites created with Microsoft FrontPage to function efficiently. In case these files aren't on your server, the Internet sites will still function, but with restricted features and they may display errors from time to time. Furthermore, when your website hosting provider has FrontPage Extensions on their servers, you can publish your content from the application, eliminating the need to use any kind of third-party FTP client in order to upload files. All that you need to do is to enter you hosting account FTP details in the FrontPage settings and the software will do all the rest. Future updates can be done identically, making FrontPage a great selection for people with minimum or no experience.
FrontPage Extensions in Shared Web Hosting
While many website hosting providers these days discontinue their support for FrontPage Extensions, we have no such plans. We believe that you should not be restricted in terms of the software programs which you can work with to build your site and you should have a choice whether you will employ FrontPage or some other app. In case you already have a site, you will be able to move it over in order to avoid losing many years of work since FrontPage Extensions are supported with all our shared web hosting packages without exception. You can enable them for any domain name or subdomain in your account by pressing the Edit button for it from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Activating this option takes just a few clicks and our system will add all of the needed FrontPage system files in the domain/subdomain folder, thus all that you'll need to do after that will be to upload your site files.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server plan through us, you are able to take advantage of FrontPage to build your site, due to the fact that FrontPage Extensions are set up on the cloud platform where your website hosting account will be made. Enabling and disabling the feature is done with several clicks and per domain or subdomain through the Hepsia Control Panel that you'll get to manage the account, so you are able to easily have a FrontPage main website and a blog or a discussion board script inside a subdomain without problems. Our system will add all of the system files needed for such a site automatically in the selected folder. Many hosting suppliers nowadays stop the support for FrontPage Extensions, however we prefer to leave this choice to you, instead of making you change the web design application that you use and throw away all of the funds and efforts that you've invested over the years to build and maintain your website.
