FrontPage Extensions are a number of system files and folders needed by websites created with Microsoft FrontPage in order to operate effectively. Without them, you can still use the app to build sites and upload your content on the web server, however the websites will have restricted features, thus the user experience won't be the same. An additional advantage of using a website hosting service with FrontPage Extensions available is the fact that you'll be able to publish your webpages 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 very easy to start and keep your web presence even if you do not have any previous knowledge, because you are able to update the site later on just as fast.
FrontPage Extensions in Shared Hosting
Unlike many web hosting suppliers out there, we do not plan to stop the support of FrontPage Extensions on any of our servers and this particular feature comes with each Linux shared package that we offer. We are aware of the possibility that if you are changing companies and you are moving your active website, you have probably worked tirelessly on it over the years, that's why we give you the opportunity to select if you will employ some other app to rebuild the website or employ the content that you already have to avoid losing years of work. Activating FrontPage Extensions on our end takes only a click in the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel and you're able to use them separately for every domain or subdomain which you have in your account. After that you are able to upload your site as our system will add the necessary FrontPage files in your domain folder, therefore you won't need to do anything else yourself.
