FrontPage Extensions are a set of system files and folders needed by sites made with Microsoft FrontPage to operate effectively. Without them, you could still use the app to make websites 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 hosting service with FrontPage Extensions available is the fact that you'll be able to publish your webpages directly on the server without using 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 don't have any previous knowledge, because you are able to update the website later on just as easily.
FrontPage Extensions in Shared Hosting
While many web hosting suppliers nowadays cease their support for FrontPage Extensions, we don't have such plans. We think that you should not be restricted when it comes to the software programs that you'll be able to work with in order to create your site and you should have a choice whether you will use FrontPage or a different application. In the event that you already have a site, you'll be able to move it over and prevent losing many years of work because FrontPage Extensions are supported with all of our shared hosting plans with no exception. You can activate them for any domain or subdomain in your account by clicking on the Edit button for it in the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Enabling this option takes just a few clicks and then our system will add all the needed FrontPage system files in the domain/subdomain folder, so all that you'll have to do following that will be to upload your website files.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server package through us, you will be able to use FrontPage to build your website, as FrontPage Extensions are set up on the cloud platform where your website hosting account will be created. Enabling and disabling the feature is done with several clicks and per domain or subdomain from the Hepsia Control Panel which you will get to manage the account, so you're able to easily have a FrontPage main site and a blog or a community forum script inside a subdomain without problems. Our system will include all of the system files necessary for such a website automatically inside the selected folder. Many website hosting providers today 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 that you use and throw away all the money and efforts that you've invested over the years to build and maintain your site.
