FrontPage Extensions are a group of system files and folders needed by websites created with Microsoft FrontPage to perform correctly. Without them, you could still use the application to build websites and upload your content on the web server, however the sites will have restricted features, thus the user experience will not be the same. One more advantage of using a web hosting service with FrontPage Extensions available is that you'll be 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 characteristic will make it very easy to start and keep your web presence even if you lack any previous knowledge, because you can update the website later on just as quickly.
FrontPage Extensions in Shared Hosting
Unlike numerous website hosting suppliers on the market, we do not plan to cease the support of FrontPage Extensions on our servers and this feature is available with each Linux shared hosting
that we supply. We are aware of the possibility that when you're switching companies and you're moving an active site, you've probably worked tirelessly on it through the years, that's why we give you the chance to pick if you will use a different application to rebuild the site or employ the content that you already own in order to avoid losing long years of work. Enabling FrontPage Extensions on our end takes just a click inside the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel and you are able to use them separately for each individual domain or subdomain that you have in your account. After that you are able to upload your website because our system will add in the required FrontPage files in the domain folder, and you will not have to do anything else yourself.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Servers
FrontPage Extensions is one of the attributes that are featured with our semi-dedicated servers
. Unlike other hosting suppliers, we've decided not to stop it and to leave the choice of web design application for you. FrontPage Extensions can be enabled for a specific domain name or subdomain, not for the account in general, so our system will add the necessary system files only in the folder where you need them, while in other folders you can put any kind of script-driven application or use some other web design software for a website that will be either an add-on to the main one or a standalone one. It'll take you a few clicks to activate FrontPage Extensions from the Hosted Domains area of the Hepsia Control Panel which is featured with the semi-dedicated accounts and it's just as simple to deactivate them. When you use our web hosting solutions, you won't have to throw away years of work in case you had hosted your site with a different company until now.
