FrontPage Extensions are a group of system files and folders needed by sites made with Microsoft FrontPage to function correctly. Without them, you could still use the application to make sites and upload your content on the web server, yet the sites will have restricted features, thus the user experience won't be the same. An additional advantage of using a web hosting service with FrontPage Extensions available is the fact that you are able to publish your pages directly on the server without using any third-party software as long as you enter your account FTP information in FrontPage. This attribute will make it quite simple to start and keep your web presence even if you don't have any previous knowledge, since you are able to update the site later on just as quickly.
FrontPage Extensions in Hosting
We support FrontPage Extensions with each hosting package that we offer and unlike the vast majority of website hosting service providers today, we do not plan to discontinue this particularfeature, so it's up to you whether you'll start and maintain your online presence employing FrontPage or another website design software. After all, if you are moving your active website to our servers, chances are that you have spent time, money and efforts and we would not like that to go in vain. You are able to enable FrontPage Extensions independently for each and every domain or subdomain through the Hepsia Control Panel, so it won't be a problem to have the main website created with FrontPage and use a script application in a subdomain for a discussion board, for example - the two won't conflict in the slightest. When you decide that you would like to move to some other platform, you can deactivate FrontPage Extensions with only a few clicks.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you are able to take advantage of FrontPage to create your site, because FrontPage Extensions are set up on the cloud platform where your web hosting account will be created. Enabling and deactivating the feature is done with several clicks and per domain or subdomain using the Hepsia Control Panel which you'll get to control the account, so you can easily have a FrontPage main website and a blog or a community forum script in a subdomain without problems. Our system will include all the system files necessary for such a site automatically in the selected folder. Lots of web hosting service providers today stop the support for FrontPage Extensions, but we would rather leave this option to you, instead of forcing you to switch the website design program which you use and throw away all the funds and efforts that you have invested through the years to build and maintain your site.
