Find out about the Microsoft FrontPage Extensions - what they are and exactly where they are used.
FrontPage Extensions are a group of system files and folders needed by websites made with Microsoft FrontPage in order to perform correctly. Without them, you can still use the app to build sites and upload your content on the web server, but the websites 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 are able to publish your web pages directly on the server without the need for any third-party software as long as you enter your account FTP info in FrontPage. This attribute will make it very easy to start and maintain your web presence even if you don't have any previous knowledge, since you are able to update the site later on just as quickly.
FrontPage Extensions in Cloud Web Hosting
Unlike numerous website hosting service providers out there, we do not plan to end the support of FrontPage Extensions on our servers and this specific attribute is provided with each cloud web hosting
that we offer. We acknowledge the possibility that in case you are changing companies and you're moving your existing website, you've probably worked on it over time, so we give you the chance to choose if you will use a different app to rebuild your site or use the content that you already own to avoid losing years of work. Activating FrontPage Extensions on our end takes just a click inside the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and you're able to use them separately for every single domain or subdomain which you have in the account. Then you'll be able to upload your site as our system will include the required FrontPage files in your domain folder, so you won't need to do anything else manually.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Servers
FrontPage Extensions are accessible with all semi-dedicated server
accounts that we supply and we do not plan to remove this particular characteristic from our plans, so you won't be forced to change companies or the web site design app that you use as you should do with plenty of providers today. It is our belief that many years of work shouldn't go in vain, so in case you transfer a website made with FrontPage here, it will work perfectly and you will be able to host it on our cloud platform long term. You can activate the feature with just a couple of clicks inside your account - sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, go to the Hosted Domains section, press the Edit button for a certain domain/subdomain, then click on the FrontPage Extensions feature which you will find and you'll be all set. Our system will do everything else, which means that you can go ahead and upload your web content without the need to do anything else manually. If you'd like to disable the feature, you can follow the very same steps.
