FrontPage Extensions are a number of system files and folders needed by sites created with Microsoft FrontPage in order to perform correctly. Without them, you can still use the app to make websites and upload your content on the web server, but the sites will have limited features, thus the user experience won't be the same. One more advantage of using a hosting service with FrontPage Extensions available is that you're 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 attribute will make it very easy to start and maintain your web presence even if you do not have any previous knowledge, since you can update the website later on just as easily.
FrontPage Extensions in Web Hosting
Unlike a lot of web hosting companies on the market, we don't intend to end the support of FrontPage Extensions on our servers and this feature is provided with each Linux web hosting
that we offer. We acknowledge the fact that in case you're changing companies and you are moving your existing website, you've probably worked on it through the years, that's why we give you the opportunity to select whether you will work with a different application to rebuild your site or employ the content that you already have and avoid losing years of work. Enabling FrontPage Extensions on our end takes just a click inside the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel and you can use them independently for every domain or subdomain that you have in your account. After that you can upload your website because our system will include the necessary FrontPage files in the domain folder, and you will not have to do anything else manually.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Servers
FrontPage Extensions is one of the features that are featured with our semi-dedicated servers
. Unlike other website hosting providers, we have decided not to discontinue it and to leave the choice of web design app to you. FrontPage Extensions can be enabled for a specific domain or subdomain, not for the account in general, so our system will place the required system files only in the folder where you need them, while in other folders you'll be able to set up any kind of script-driven app or work with another web design software for a site which will be either an add-on to the main one or a separate one. It will take you a few clicks to activate FrontPage Extensions from the Hosted Domains area of the Hepsia Control Panel that is featured with the semi-dedicated accounts and it is just as simple to deactivate them. When you use our hosting solutions, you will not have to waste years of work in case you had hosted your website with another company until now.
