FrontPage Extensions are a set of system files and folders needed by sites designed with Microsoft FrontPage to operate efficiently. Without them, you may still use the app to create sites and upload your content on the web server, however the websites will have limited 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 webpages directly on the server without the need for any third-party software as long as you enter your account FTP information in FrontPage. This characteristic will make it very easy to start and maintain your web presence even if you don't have any previous knowledge, since you are able to update the website later on just as quickly.
FrontPage Extensions in Shared Web Hosting
Unlike a number of website hosting service providers out there, we don't intend to end the support of FrontPage Extensions on our servers and this particular feature is provided with each and every Linux shared web hosting
that we supply. We are aware of the fact that if you are switching companies and you are moving an active website, you've probably worked tirelessly on it over time, that's why we give you the option to pick whether you'll use some other application to rebuild the site or employ the content that you already own to avoid losing years of work. Activating FrontPage Extensions on our end takes only a click from the Hosted Domains area of the Hepsia Control Panel and you are able to use them independently for every single domain or subdomain that you have in the account. After that you'll be able to upload your site because our system will add the required FrontPage files in your domain folder, and you will not need to do anything else manually.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Hosting
FrontPage Extensions is one of the characteristics that come with our Linux semi-dedicated hosting
. Unlike other website hosting service providers, we've decided not to discontinue it and to leave the choice of web design app for you. FrontPage Extensions can be enabled for a single domain or subdomain, not for the account in general, which means that our system will add the needed system files only in the folder where you need them, while in other folders you are able to put any kind of script-driven application or employ some other website design software for a website which will be either an addition to the main one or a standalone one. It will take you just a few clicks to activate FrontPage Extensions from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is featured with the semi-dedicated accounts and it is just as simple to deactivate them. When you use our hosting services, you won't have to waste years of work in case you had hosted your website with some other company so far.
