FrontPage Extensions are a number of system files and folders needed by websites created with Microsoft FrontPage in order to operate correctly. Without them, you may still use the application to build websites and upload your content on the web server, however the sites will have limited features, thus the user experience won't be the same. One more advantage of using a website hosting service with FrontPage Extensions available is that you're able to publish your pages directly on the server without using any third-party software as long as you enter your account FTP information in FrontPage. This feature will make it really easy to start and keep your web presence even if you do not have any previous knowledge, since you can update the site later on just as quickly.
FrontPage Extensions in Shared Website Hosting
While many website hosting providers today discontinue their support for FrontPage Extensions, we have no such plans. We think that you shouldn't be restricted when it comes to the software that you're able to employ to create your site and you should have a choice whether you will employ FrontPage or a different app. If you already have a site, you will be able to move it over and avoid losing many years of work because FrontPage Extensions are supported with all of our shared website hosting plans with no exception. You could activate them for each domain name or subdomain in your account by pressing the Edit button for it from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Activating this option takes a couple of clicks then our system will add all of the required FrontPage system files in the domain/subdomain folder, which means that all that you will need to do afterwards will be to upload your website files.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to employ FrontPage to build your website, since FrontPage Extensions are installed on the cloud platform where your website hosting account will be created. Activating and disabling the feature is done with a couple of clicks and per domain or subdomain from 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 discussion board script inside a subdomain without any problems. Our system will include all of the system files necessary for such a website automatically in the selected folder. Lots of hosting providers these days stop the support for FrontPage Extensions, however we choose to leave this option to you, instead of forcing you to switch the website design program which you use and waste all of the money and efforts that you have invested over the years in order to build and maintain your website.
