FrontPage Extensions are system files that have to be present on a web server for specific features of sites created with Microsoft FrontPage to operate properly. In case these files are not on your server, your websites will still function, but with limited capabilities and they may display errors every so often. In addition, in case your web hosting provider has FrontPage Extensions on their servers, you can publish your content directly from the application, eliminating the need to employ any third-party FTP client to upload files. All that you should do is to enter you web hosting account FTP info in the FrontPage settings and the software will do all the rest. Future updates can be done in exactly the same way, making FrontPage an excellent option for people with minimum or no experience.
FrontPage Extensions in Cloud Website Hosting
We support FrontPage Extensions with every single cloud website hosting plan that we offer and unlike numerous hosting providers these days, we will not discontinue this particularfeature, so it's up to you if you will launch and maintain your web presence using FrontPage or another website design software. In fact, when you are moving an existing site to our servers, chances are that you have spent money, time and efforts and we would not want that to be in vain. You can enable FrontPage Extensions independently for each and every domain name or subdomain through the Hepsia Control Panel, which means that it will not be a problem to have the main site created with FrontPage and employ some script application in a subdomain for a community forum, for instance - the two won't interfere in the slightest. When you decide that you want to switch to a different platform, you're able to deactivate FrontPage Extensions with just a couple of clicks.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you can use FrontPage to create your website, as FrontPage Extensions are set up on the cloud platform where your hosting account will be made. Enabling and deactivating the feature is done with a few clicks and per domain or subdomain through the Hepsia Control Panel that you will get to control the account, so you can easily have a FrontPage main site and a blog or a community forum script inside a subdomain without any problems. Our system will include all system files necessary for such a site automatically within the selected folder. Many website hosting providers today stop the support for FrontPage Extensions, but we would rather leave this choice to you, instead of requiring from you to change the website design app that you use and throw away all of the funds and efforts that you have invested over the years in order to build and maintain your website.
