FrontPage Extensions are a number of system files and folders needed by sites designed with Microsoft FrontPage to perform efficiently. Without them, you can still use the application to create sites and upload your content on the web server, yet the websites will have restricted features, thus the user experience won't be the same. Another advantage of using a website hosting service with FrontPage Extensions available is the fact that you can publish your pages 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 really easy to start and maintain your web presence even if you don't have any previous knowledge, since you'll be able to update the website in the future just as easily.
FrontPage Extensions in Shared Website Hosting
While many hosting companies today discontinue their support for FrontPage Extensions, we have no such plans. We believe that you should not be limited regarding the software programs which you can take advantage of in order to create your website and you should have a choice whether you will employ FrontPage or some other app. If you already have a website, you can move it over in order to avoid losing many years of work since FrontPage Extensions are supported with all of our shared website hosting packages without exception. You could enable them for any domain or subdomain within your account by clicking on the Edit button for it from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Activating this option takes only a couple of clicks and our system will add all the required FrontPage system files inside the domain/subdomain folder, so all that you will have to do after that will be to upload your website files.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you're able to take advantage of FrontPage to build your website, since FrontPage Extensions are installed on the cloud platform where your hosting account will be made. Activating and deactivating the feature is done with several clicks and per domain or subdomain through your Hepsia Control Panel which you will get to control the account, which means that you are able to easily have a FrontPage main website and a blog or a community forum script within a subdomain without problems. Our system will add all the system files required for such a website automatically within the selected folder. A lot of web hosting companies these days stop the support for FrontPage Extensions, but we would rather leave this option to you, rather than requiring from you to switch the web design app which you use and waste all of the funds and efforts that you have invested over time in order to create and maintain your site.
