Microsoft FrontPage Extensions - what exactly are they intended for and how to take full advantage of them.
FrontPage Extensions are special system files, that are required for websites designed with Microsoft FrontPage to work properly on a web server. Without these files, your websites will still work, however some functions will be unavailable, that can immediately have an affect on the user experience of your website visitors. When FrontPage Extensions are present on the website hosting server, you can also upload the site which you have designed on your PC straight away and with no additional software like some FTP program. You'll only have to enter the FTP login details for your hosting account and FrontPage will do all the rest, uploading or updating your files. Taking into consideration how easy it is to use FrontPage, you are able to launch your online presence instantly even if you've never made a website before.
FrontPage Extensions in Hosting
You can build and upload your site by using FrontPage, because all Linux hosting
that we offer support FrontPage Extensions. Though numerous other providers discontinue the support of this feature, we leave it to you to decide if you will continue using FrontPage or you'll switch to an alternative website design application and we have no plans for this to change. After you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, which will be used to manage your brand new hosting account, you can enable FrontPage extensions for any domain name that you host or subdomain that you create with just two clicks. The feature will be activated straight away and our system will add the FrontPage Extensions system files in the selected folder, therefore you can go ahead and upload your site files without any hassle. If you choose to move to a different application for your site, deactivating FrontPage Extensions is just as easy.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Hosting

accounts that we offer and we do not plan to remove this particular feature from our packages, therefore you won't be forced to switch companies or the website design app which you use like you have to do with lots of providers today. It is our belief that years of work should not be wasted, so in case you move a site built with FrontPage here, it'll function flawlessly and you'll be able to host it on our cloud platform long term. You can activate the feature with just a couple of clicks in your account - log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, visit the Hosted Domains section, click on the Edit button for a given domain/subdomain, then click on the FrontPage Extensions option which you will see and you are all set.
