Microsoft FrontPage Extensions - what are they used for and the way to use them.
FrontPage Extensions are system files which should be present on a web server for certain features of websites designed with Microsoft FrontPage to operate correctly. When these files are not on the server, your websites will still operate, but with limited features and they may display errors every so often. Furthermore, when your website hosting provider has FrontPage Extensions on their servers, you will be able to publish your content straight from the program, eliminating the necessity to employ any kind of third-party FTP client in order to upload files. All you need to do is to enter you hosting account FTP details in the FrontPage settings and the application will do all the rest. Future updates can be done in the same way, making FrontPage a fantastic choice for people with little or no experience.
FrontPage Extensions in Shared Hosting
Unlike a lot of hosting service providers on the market, we don't plan to end the support of FrontPage Extensions on our servers and this specific feature is available with every single Linux shared hosting
that we offer. We are aware of the fact that if you are switching companies and you're moving your existing website, you have probably worked on it over the years, so we give you the option to decide whether you'll use another application to rebuild the site or employ the content which you already own in order to avoid losing long 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'll be able to use them independently for every domain or subdomain that you have in the account. After that you're able to upload your website because our system will include the required 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
plan from us, you can take advantage of FrontPage to make your website, as FrontPage Extensions are set up 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 using the Hepsia Control Panel which you will get to manage the account, which means that you are able to easily have a FrontPage main site and a blog or a forum script in a subdomain without any problems. Our system will include all of the system files necessary for such a site automatically in the selected folder. A lot of hosting suppliers today stop the support for FrontPage Extensions, however we would rather leave this choice to you, instead of forcing you to switch the web design software which you use and throw away all of the money and efforts that you have invested over time in order to build and maintain your website.
