FrontPage Extensions are system files that need to be available on a web server for specific features of websites made with Microsoft FrontPage to work appropriately. If these files aren't on the server, your websites will still operate, but with restricted features and they will probably display errors every so often. Furthermore, when your web hosting provider has FrontPage Extensions on their servers, you can publish your content straight from the program, eliminating the need to work with any 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 software will do the rest. Future updates can be performed in exactly the same way, which makes FrontPage a great selection for people with minimum or no experience.
FrontPage Extensions in Shared Hosting
Unlike numerous web hosting service providers out there, we do not plan to end the support of FrontPage Extensions on any of our servers and this feature comes with each shared hosting that we supply. We are aware of the possibility that if you're changing companies and you are moving an existing site, you've probably worked tirelessly on it over the years, that's why we give you the opportunity to select if you will work with some other application to rebuild the website or use the content that you already have in order to avoid losing years of work. Enabling FrontPage Extensions on our end takes just a click in the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel and you're able to use them separately for each individual domain or subdomain which you have in the account. Then you're able to upload your website as our system will add in the required FrontPage files in the domain folder, and you won't need to do anything else yourself.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Servers
FrontPage Extensions are available with all of the semi-dedicated server accounts that we offer and we don't plan to remove this characteristic from any of our packages, so you won't be forced to switch companies or the website design app that you employ as you have to do with numerous providers these days. It is our belief that many years of work should not go in vain, so in case you transfer a site created with FrontPage here, it'll function perfectly and you'll be able to host it on our cloud platform in the long run. You can activate the feature with just a few clicks inside your account - sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, visit the Hosted Domains section, click the Edit button for a certain domain/subdomain, then click on the FrontPage Extensions option that you will see and you will be all set. Our system will do the rest, which means that you can proceed and upload your web content without having to do anything else manually. If you need to deactivate the feature, you can follow the same steps.
