FrontPage Extensions are a group of system files and folders needed by websites designed with Microsoft FrontPage in order to operate correctly. Without them, you can 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 will not be the same. An additional advantage of using a website hosting service with FrontPage Extensions available is the fact that you're able to publish your web pages directly on the server without using 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 maintain your web presence even if you lack any previous knowledge, because you can update the website in the future just as quickly.
FrontPage Extensions in Cloud Web Hosting
While many web hosting service providers today discontinue their support for FrontPage Extensions, we don't have such plans. We think that you shouldn't be limited in terms of the software programs which you can use to create your website and it is best to have a choice if you will use FrontPage or a different app. In the event that you already have a site, you can easily move it over in order to avoid losing many years of work because FrontPage Extensions are supported with all of our cloud web hosting plans with no exception. You can activate them for each domain name or subdomain in your account by pressing the Edit button for it in the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Activating the option takes just a couple of clicks and our system will add all the needed FrontPage system files inside the domain/subdomain folder, therefore all that you will need to do after that will be to upload your website files.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Servers
FrontPage Extensions are accessible with all semi-dedicated server accounts that we supply and we don't plan to remove this characteristic from our packages, so you will not be forced to change companies or the web design application that you use like you should do with lots of providers today. It's our belief that many years of work shouldn't go in vain, so in case you transfer a website created with FrontPage here, it'll work properly and you will be able to host it on our cloud platform long term. You can activate the feature with only a few clicks inside your account - sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, head to the Hosted Domains section, click the Edit button for a given domain/subdomain, then click on the FrontPage Extensions option that you will find and you will be ready. Our system will do everything else, which means that you can proceed and upload your world wide web content without having to do anything else manually. In order to disable the feature, you can follow the very same steps.
