Microsoft FrontPage Extensions - what are they used for and how to take full advantage of them.
FrontPage Extensions are a set of system files and folders needed by websites designed with Microsoft FrontPage in order to function properly. Without them, you could still use the app to create sites and upload your content on the web server, but the sites will have restricted features, thus the user experience won't be the same. Another advantage of using a 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 characteristic will make it really easy to start and keep your web presence even if you do not have any previous knowledge, because you're able to update your website in the future just as fast.
FrontPage Extensions in Shared Website Hosting
Unlike a large number of hosting companies on the market, we don't intend to cease the support of FrontPage Extensions on our servers and this particular attribute is accessible with each and every shared website hosting plan
that we supply. We acknowledge the possibility that if you're changing companies and you are moving an active site, you've probably worked on it over the years, that's why we give you the option to choose if you'll employ another application to rebuild your site or employ the content that you already have to avoid losing years of work. Activating FrontPage Extensions on our end takes just a click from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel and you're able to use them separately for each individual domain or subdomain that you have in the account. After that you'll be able to upload your website since our system will add in the required FrontPage files in your domain folder, and you won't have to do anything else yourself.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Servers
FrontPage Extensions are available with all of the semi-dedicated server
accounts that we offer and we don't plan to remove this particular characteristic from any of our plans, therefore you won't be forced to switch companies or the web site design application which you employ as you should do with numerous providers these days. It is our belief that years of work shouldn't be wasted, so if you transfer a website created with FrontPage here, it'll function flawlessly and you will be able to host it on our cloud platform in the long run. You can enable the feature with just a few clicks inside your account - log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, visit the Hosted Domains section, click on the Edit button for a certain domain/subdomain, then click on the FrontPage Extensions option which you'll see and you'll be ready. Our system will do the rest, which means that you can proceed and upload your world wide web content without having to do anything else manually. If you would like deactivate the feature, you should follow the very same steps.
