Find out about the Microsoft FrontPage Extensions - what they are and exactly where they are used.
FrontPage Extensions are special system files, that are needed for websites designed with Microsoft FrontPage so as to work properly on a web server. Without these files, the sites will still function, yet some functions will be inaccessible, that can instantly affect the user experience of your website visitors. When FrontPage Extensions are available on the hosting server, you can also upload the website which you've made on your PC instantly and without any additional software like some FTP program. You will only have to type in the FTP login info for your website hosting account and FrontPage will do all the rest, uploading or updating the files. Taking into account how easy it is to work with FrontPage, you're able to launch your online presence right away even if you have never built a website before.
FrontPage Extensions in Web Hosting
While many website hosting service providers these days stop their support for FrontPage Extensions, we have no such plans. We think that you shouldn't be limited with regard to the software that you'll be able to take advantage of to create your site and it's best to have a choice whether you will use FrontPage or some other application. In case you already have a site, you can easily move it over and avoid losing many years of work because FrontPage Extensions are supported with all of our web hosting
plans with no exception. You could activate them for each domain name or subdomain within your account by clicking on the Edit button for it inside the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Activating this option takes only a couple of clicks and then our system will add all of the required FrontPage system files in the domain/subdomain folder, so all that you'll need to do following that will be to upload your website files.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Servers
FrontPage Extensions are available with all semi-dedicated server
accounts that we provide and we do not plan to remove this particular feature from any of our packages, so you will not be forced to switch companies or the web design app that you employ as you need to do with plenty of providers nowadays. It's our belief that many years of work should not be wasted, so if you move a website created with FrontPage here, it will function flawlessly and you will be able to host it on our cloud platform in the long run. You can activate the feature with only a few clicks inside your account - sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, go to the Hosted Domains section, click the Edit button for a given domain/subdomain, then click on the FrontPage Extensions option which you will see and you're all set.
