What are the Microsoft FrontPage Extensions? What are they intended for?
FrontPage Extensions are special system files, that are required for sites built with Microsoft FrontPage in order to work effectively on a web server. Without these files, your websites will still function, however some features will be inaccessible, that will directly affect the user experience of your visitors. If FrontPage Extensions are available on the hosting server, you'll also be able to upload the site that you've built on your computer system right away and without any additional software such as some FTP program. You will just need to type in the FTP sign in data for your hosting account and FrontPage will do all the rest, uploading or updating your files. Taking into consideration how easy it is to take advantage of FrontPage, you'll be able to start your online presence almost instantly even if you've never made a site before.
FrontPage Extensions in Shared Web Hosting
Unlike various website hosting companies out there, we don't plan to end the support of FrontPage Extensions on any of our servers and this attribute is accessible with every single Linux shared web hosting
that we supply. We are aware of the possibility that when you're changing companies and you are moving an active website, you've probably worked tirelessly on it through the years, so we give you the option to choose whether you'll use some other application to rebuild the site or employ the content that you already own and avoid losing long years of work. Enabling FrontPage Extensions on our end takes just a click in the Hosted Domains area of the Hepsia Control Panel and you're able to use them independently for every single domain or subdomain which you have in the account. After that you can upload your website as our system will include the needed FrontPage files in the domain folder, so you will not have to do anything else yourself.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server
plan from our company, you're able to take advantage of FrontPage to make your site, as FrontPage Extensions are installed 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 your Hepsia Control Panel which you will get to manage the account, so you'll be able to easily have a FrontPage main site and a blog or a community forum script in a subdomain without problems. Our system will add all the system files required for such a site automatically in the selected folder. A lot of website hosting companies these days stop the support for FrontPage Extensions, but we prefer to leave this choice to you, rather than making you change the website design app that you use and throw away all the money and efforts that you've invested through the years in order to build and maintain your site.
