What are the Microsoft FrontPage Extensions? What exactly are they intended for?
FrontPage Extensions are system files which have to be present on a web server for particular features of sites designed with Microsoft FrontPage to operate effectively. If these files are not on the server, your Internet sites will still function, but with limited functionality and they will probably display errors from time to time. Furthermore, when your website hosting provider has FrontPage Extensions on their servers, you'll be able to publish your content directly from the application, eliminating the necessity to use any kind of third-party FTP client to upload files. All that you need to do is to enter you website hosting account FTP info in the FrontPage settings and the program will do the rest. Future updates can be performed in the same way, making FrontPage a great option for people with minimum or no experience.
FrontPage Extensions in Web Hosting
While many web hosting suppliers today discontinue their support for FrontPage Extensions, we have no such plans. We believe that you shouldn't be limited when it comes to the software programs that you'll be able to employ in order to build your site and it's best to have a choice if you will use FrontPage or a different application. In case you already have a site, you can move it over and avoid losing years of work since FrontPage Extensions are supported with all our web hosting
packages with no exception. You may activate them for each domain or subdomain within your account by pressing the Edit button for it from the Hosted Domains area of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Enabling this option takes only a few clicks and our system will add all the needed FrontPage system files in the domain/subdomain folder, thus all that you will need to do following that will be to upload your site files.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Servers
FrontPage Extensions are available with all the semi-dedicated server
accounts that we provide and we do not plan to remove this characteristic from any of our packages, so you will not be forced to switch companies or the web site design application which you employ as you have to do with lots of providers these days. It's our belief that many years of work should not be wasted, so if you move a site built with FrontPage here, it will run correctly and you will be able to host it on our cloud platform long term. You can enable the feature with just a couple of clicks in your account - log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, visit the Hosted Domains section, press the Edit button for a particular domain/subdomain, then click on the FrontPage Extensions option which you will notice and you'll be ready. Our system will do the rest, so you can go ahead and upload your site content with no need to do anything else manually. If you need to disable the feature, you can follow the very same steps.
