FrontPage Extensions are a number of system files and folders needed by sites created with Microsoft FrontPage to operate correctly. Without them, you could still use the app to build sites and upload your content on the web server, but the websites will have restricted features, thus the user experience won't be the same. An additional advantage of using a website 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 info in FrontPage. This feature will make it really easy to start and keep your web presence even if you lack any previous knowledge, as you're able to update the site in the future just as easily.
FrontPage Extensions in Hosting
While many web hosting service providers nowadays cease their support for FrontPage Extensions, we have no such plans. We think that you should not be restricted regarding the software programs that you can take advantage of in order to create your website and it is best to have a choice if you will employ FrontPage or some other app. In case you already have a website, you can move it over in order to avoid losing years of work as FrontPage Extensions are supported with all our hosting plans without exception. You can activate them for any domain or subdomain within your account by pressing the Edit button for it from the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Activating the option takes only a couple of clicks and then our system will add all the needed FrontPage system files in the domain/subdomain folder, which means that all that you will need to do afterwards will be to upload your site files.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Servers
FrontPage Extensions are accessible with all of the semi-dedicated server accounts that we supply and we do not plan to remove this particular feature from any of our plans, so you will not be forced to change companies or the web design app that you employ like you should do with a number of providers nowadays. It is our belief that many years of work should not go in vain, so if you transfer a website designed with FrontPage here, it'll run properly and you'll be able to host it on our cloud platform in the future. You can activate the feature with just a couple of clicks in your account - sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, head to the Hosted Domains section, click on the Edit button for a particular domain/subdomain, then click on the FrontPage Extensions feature that you will notice and you'll be all set. Our system will do the rest, which means that you can go ahead and upload your website content without the need to do anything else manually. If you want to disable the feature, you should follow the exact same steps.
