FrontPage Extensions are a set of system files and folders needed by websites designed with Microsoft FrontPage so as to function efficiently. Without them, you could still use the app to make websites and upload your content on the web server, but the websites will have limited features, thus the user experience will not be the same. An additional advantage of using a hosting service with FrontPage Extensions available is the fact that you'll be 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 information in FrontPage. This characteristic will make it very easy to start and keep your web presence even if you don't have any previous knowledge, since you're able to update your website later on just as quickly.
FrontPage Extensions in Shared Hosting
Unlike numerous website hosting service providers on the market, we don't plan to end the support of FrontPage Extensions on our servers and this specific feature comes with each and every Linux shared hosting that we supply. We are aware of the possibility that in case you are switching companies and you are moving your existing website, you've probably worked on it over time, that's why we give you the opportunity to decide if you'll employ a different app to rebuild your website or use the content that you already own to avoid losing long years of work. Enabling FrontPage Extensions on our end takes just a click inside the Hosted Domains area of the Hepsia Control Panel and you are able to use them separately for each individual domain or subdomain that you have in your account. Then you're able to upload your site because our system will add in the required FrontPage files in your domain folder, and you won't have to do anything else manually.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server package through us, you'll be able to use FrontPage to create your website, as FrontPage Extensions are installed on the cloud platform where your web hosting account will be created. Enabling and disabling the feature is done with a few clicks and per domain or subdomain using the Hepsia Control Panel that you will get to control the account, which means that you're able to easily have a FrontPage main website and a blog or a community forum script in a subdomain without problems. Our system will include all of the system files needed for such a site automatically in the selected folder. Plenty of web hosting providers nowadays stop the support for FrontPage Extensions, yet we choose to leave this choice to you, instead of forcing you to switch the website design app that you use and throw away all of the funds and efforts that you have invested over time in order to create and maintain your site.
