FrontPage Extensions are a set of system files and folders needed by websites made with Microsoft FrontPage so as to operate properly. Without them, you can still use the application to create websites and upload your content on the web server, yet the websites will have restricted features, thus the user experience won't be the same. One more advantage of using a hosting service with FrontPage Extensions available is that you're 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 really easy to start and keep your web presence even if you lack any previous knowledge, as you're able to update the site in the future just as easily.
FrontPage Extensions in Shared Hosting
While many web hosting providers today stop their support for FrontPage Extensions, we have no such plans. We think that you should not be restricted regarding the software which you are able to employ in order to build your website and it is best to have a choice whether you will work with FrontPage or a different application. In case you already have a website, you can move it over and prevent losing many years of work since FrontPage Extensions are supported with all of our shared hosting plans with no exception. You can activate them for any domain or subdomain inside your account by pressing the Edit button for it in the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Enabling this option takes just a couple of clicks then our system will add all the required FrontPage system files inside the domain/subdomain folder, so all that you'll need to do after that will be to upload your website files.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Servers
FrontPage Extensions is among the features which are featured with our semi-dedicated servers. Unlike other hosting suppliers, we have decided not to discontinue it and to leave the choice of website design app to you. FrontPage Extensions can be enabled for a single domain name or subdomain, not for the account as a whole, so our system will place the required system files just in the folder where you need them, while in other folders you are able to set up any script-driven app or use some other website design software for a site that will be either an addition to the main one or a separate one. It'll take you just a couple of clicks to activate FrontPage Extensions through the Hosted Domains area of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with the semi-dedicated accounts and it is just as quick to deactivate them. When you use our web hosting solutions, you will not have to throw away years of work if you had hosted your website with another company so far.
