FrontPage Extensions are a group of system files and folders needed by sites made with Microsoft FrontPage to perform properly. Without them, you may still use the application to create sites and upload your content on the web server, yet the sites will have limited features, thus the user experience won't be the same. An additional advantage of using a web hosting service with FrontPage Extensions available is the fact that you're 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 feature will make it very easy to start and keep your web presence even if you do not have any previous knowledge, because you are able to update your website in the future just as quickly.
FrontPage Extensions in Shared Web Hosting
Unlike various website hosting companies out there, we do not plan to end the support of FrontPage Extensions on any of our servers and this attribute is provided with each shared web hosting package that we offer. We are aware of the possibility that if you're switching companies and you are moving your active site, you have probably worked on it over the years, so we give you the opportunity to decide if you'll use another app to rebuild the website or use the content which you already own and avoid losing long years of work. Activating FrontPage Extensions on our end takes only a click inside the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and you're able to use them independently for each individual domain or subdomain which you have in the account. Then you're able to upload your website as our system will add in the needed FrontPage files in your domain folder, therefore you won't have to do anything else manually.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you will be able to work with FrontPage to build your site, as FrontPage Extensions are set up on the cloud platform where your website hosting account will be created. Enabling and deactivating the feature is done with a few clicks and per domain or subdomain through the Hepsia Control Panel that you will get to control the account, so you can easily have a FrontPage main website and a blog or a community forum script inside a subdomain without any problems. Our system will add all of the system files required for such a website automatically inside the selected folder. Many hosting service providers these days stop the support for FrontPage Extensions, yet we prefer to leave this option to you, rather than forcing you to switch the web design app that you use and waste all of the money and efforts that you've invested over time to build and maintain your site.
