Microsoft FrontPage Extensions - what are they used for and the way to use them.
FrontPage Extensions are a group of system files and folders needed by websites designed with Microsoft FrontPage to function correctly. Without them, you can still use the application to create websites and upload your content on the web server, however the sites will have restricted features, thus the user experience won't be the same. Another advantage of using a web hosting service with FrontPage Extensions available is the fact that you're able to publish your webpages directly on the server without using any third-party software as long as you enter your account FTP info in FrontPage. This characteristic will make it very easy to start and keep your web presence even if you don't have any previous knowledge, because you're able to update the site later on just as easily.
FrontPage Extensions in Cloud Website Hosting
Unlike a number of website hosting service providers out there, we don't plan to cease the support of FrontPage Extensions on any of our servers and this particular feature is accessible with every single cloud website hosting plan
that we supply. We are aware of the possibility that in case you're changing companies and you're moving an active site, you have probably worked tirelessly on it through the years, that's why we give you the chance to choose whether you'll employ another app to rebuild your website or use the content which you already have in order to avoid losing long years of work. Enabling FrontPage Extensions on our end takes just a click inside the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel and you'll be able to use them independently for each individual domain or subdomain which you have in the account. After that you'll be able to upload your website since our system will add in the needed FrontPage files in your domain folder, so you won't have to do anything else manually.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server
plan from our company, you're able to use FrontPage to make your site, as FrontPage Extensions are installed on the cloud platform where your hosting account will be created. Enabling and deactivating the feature is done with a couple of clicks and per domain or subdomain using the Hepsia Control Panel that you'll get to control the account, which means that you are able to easily have a FrontPage main website and a blog or a forum script within a subdomain without problems. Our system will add all system files needed for such a website automatically within the selected folder. Many hosting service providers nowadays stop the support for FrontPage Extensions, yet we would rather leave this choice to you, rather than requiring from you to switch the web design software that you use and throw away all of the money and efforts that you've invested through the years to create and maintain your website.
