FrontPage Extensions are a group of system files and folders needed by websites made with Microsoft FrontPage to operate effectively. Without them, you could still use the app to make websites and upload your content on the web server, yet the websites will have limited features, thus the user experience won't be the same. One more advantage of using a web hosting service with FrontPage Extensions available is that you'll be able to publish your web pages directly on the server without using any third-party software as long as you enter your account FTP information in FrontPage. This attribute will make it very easy to start and keep your web presence even if you don't have any previous knowledge, because you're able to update the website in the future just as quickly.
FrontPage Extensions in Cloud Web Hosting
Unlike a number of website hosting companies out there, we don't plan to end the support of FrontPage Extensions on any of our servers and this feature is accessible with each and every cloud web hosting that we offer. We acknowledge the possibility that in case you are switching companies and you're moving an active site, you have probably worked on it through the years, so we give you the chance to choose if you will work with some other application to rebuild your site or employ the content which you already have to avoid losing long years of work. Enabling FrontPage Extensions on our end takes only a click in the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel and you are able to use them separately for every single domain or subdomain that you have in your account. After that you can upload your website since our system will add in the necessary FrontPage files in your domain folder, therefore you won't have to do anything else manually.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server package from us, you're able to work with FrontPage to create your website, since FrontPage Extensions are set up on the cloud platform where your hosting account will be made. 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 can easily have a FrontPage main site and a blog or a discussion forum script in a subdomain without problems. Our system will add all system files needed for such a site automatically in the selected folder. Lots of website hosting companies nowadays stop the support for FrontPage Extensions, but we prefer to leave this choice to you, rather than expecting you to switch the web design program which you use and throw away all the money and efforts that you have invested over the years to build and maintain your site.
