What are the Microsoft FrontPage Extensions? What are they used for?
FrontPage Extensions are system files that should be present on a web server in order for certain features of sites made with Microsoft FrontPage to operate appropriately. When these files are not on your server, your websites will still function, but with restricted capabilities and they will probably display errors from time to time. In addition, in case your hosting provider has FrontPage Extensions on their servers, you'll be able to publish your content from the application, eliminating the need to employ any kind of third-party FTP client so as to upload files. All you should do is to enter you website hosting account FTP information in the FrontPage settings and the program will do the rest. Future updates can be done in exactly the same way, which makes FrontPage a fantastic choice for people with little or no experience.
FrontPage Extensions in Shared Website Hosting
While many web hosting companies these days discontinue their support for FrontPage Extensions, we don't have such plans. We think that you shouldn't be limited when it comes to the software that you'll be able to use to create your site and you should have a choice if you will use FrontPage or another application. If you already have a website, you can move it over and prevent losing many years of work because FrontPage Extensions are supported with all of our shared website hosting
packages with no exception. You can enable them for each domain or subdomain in your account by clicking on the Edit button for it from the Hosted Domains area of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Enabling the option takes a couple of clicks then our system will add all of the needed FrontPage system files inside the domain/subdomain folder, so all that you'll have to do afterwards will be to upload your website files.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Hosting
FrontPage Extensions is one of the characteristics that are featured with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages
. Unlike other hosting suppliers, we've decided not to discontinue it and to leave the choice of web design app for you. FrontPage Extensions can be enabled for a particular domain or subdomain, not for the account as a whole, so our system will add the needed system files only in the folder where you need them, while in other folders you'll be able to set up any kind of script-driven app or work with any other website design software for a site which will be either an addition to the main one or a standalone one. It will take you just a few clicks to activate FrontPage Extensions through the Hosted Domains area of the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with the semi-dedicated accounts and it's just as simple to deactivate them. When you use our hosting services, you won't have to throw away years of work in case you had hosted your website with a different company so far.
