What are the Microsoft FrontPage Extensions? What are they employed for?
FrontPage Extensions are system files that have to be available on a web server in order for specific features of websites designed with Microsoft FrontPage to operate properly. In case these files aren't on the server, the sites will still operate, but with limited functionality and they will probably display errors every so often. Furthermore, if 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 work with any kind of third-party FTP client in order to upload files. All you have to do is to enter you hosting account FTP details in the FrontPage settings and the program will do the rest. Future updates can be performed in the same way, which makes FrontPage a great choice for people with little or no experience.
FrontPage Extensions in Shared Website Hosting
Unlike a lot of web hosting companies on the market, we do not plan to cease the support of FrontPage Extensions on our servers and this feature comes with each Linux shared website hosting plan
that we offer. We acknowledge the possibility that if you're switching companies and you're moving your active website, you have probably worked tirelessly on it through the years, so we give you the option to decide if you will use another app to rebuild your website or employ the content that you already own and avoid losing years of work. Enabling FrontPage Extensions on our end takes only a click in the Hosted Domains area of the Hepsia Control Panel and you are able to use them independently for every domain or subdomain which you have in your account. After that you're able to upload your website as our system will add the needed FrontPage files in the domain folder, so you will not need to do anything else manually.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server
plan from us, you're able to work with FrontPage to build your site, as FrontPage Extensions are installed on the cloud platform where your web hosting account will be created. Activating and deactivating the feature is done with a few clicks and per domain or subdomain using the Hepsia Control Panel that you'll get to control the account, so you are able to easily have a FrontPage main site and a blog or a discussion forum script inside a subdomain without any problems. Our system will include all system files necessary for such a website automatically in the selected folder. A lot of web hosting providers these days stop the support for FrontPage Extensions, but we would rather leave this option to you, rather than expecting you to change the web design software that you use and throw away all the funds and efforts that you have invested over the years to build and maintain your website.
