FrontPage Extensions are a set of system files and folders needed by websites made with Microsoft FrontPage in order to function effectively. Without them, you may still use the application to build sites and upload your content on the web server, however the websites will have restricted features, thus the user experience won't be the same. An additional advantage of using a web hosting service with FrontPage Extensions available is that you can publish your web pages directly on the server without the need for any third-party software as long as you enter your account FTP details in FrontPage. This feature will make it really easy to start and keep your web presence even if you lack any previous knowledge, as you are able to update the website in the future just as quickly.
FrontPage Extensions in Hosting
Unlike numerous hosting service providers on the market, we don't plan to stop the support of FrontPage Extensions on our servers and this particular feature is accessible with each Linux hosting that we supply. We acknowledge the possibility that if you're switching companies and you're moving your existing site, you have probably worked tirelessly on it over time, that's why we give you the option to decide whether you'll work with a different application to rebuild the website or use the content that you already own in order to avoid losing years of work. Enabling FrontPage Extensions on our end takes just a click from the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel and you're able to use them independently for every single domain or subdomain that you have in the account. Then you'll be able to upload your website as our system will include the needed FrontPage files in the domain folder, therefore you won't need to do anything else manually.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server package from us, you are able to use FrontPage to create your site, as FrontPage Extensions are installed on the cloud platform where your website hosting account will be created. Activating and disabling the feature is done with several clicks and per domain or subdomain from your Hepsia Control Panel which you'll get to manage the account, so you can easily have a FrontPage main site and a blog or a discussion board script in a subdomain without any problems. Our system will add all the system files needed for such a website automatically within the selected folder. Many hosting suppliers today stop the support for FrontPage Extensions, but we would rather leave this choice to you, rather than requiring from you to switch the website design program which you use and throw away all of the money and efforts that you've invested over time in order to create and maintain your website.
