FrontPage Extensions are a set of system files and folders needed by websites designed with Microsoft FrontPage in order to function effectively. Without them, you could still use the application to build sites and upload your content on the web server, yet the websites will have restricted features, thus the user experience will not be the same. An additional advantage of using a hosting service with FrontPage Extensions available is the fact that you are able to publish your pages directly on the server without the need for any third-party software as long as you enter your account FTP details in FrontPage. This characteristic will make it really easy to start and keep your web presence even if you don't have any previous knowledge, because you'll be able to update your website in the future just as quickly.
FrontPage Extensions in Web Hosting
Unlike a lot of web hosting service providers out there, we do not plan to cease the support of FrontPage Extensions on any of our servers and this specific feature comes with each and every Linux web hosting
that we offer. We acknowledge the possibility that if you're switching companies and you're moving an active site, you have probably worked tirelessly on it through the years, so we give you the opportunity to choose if you'll use some other application to rebuild your website or employ the content that you already own to avoid losing long 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'll be able to use them separately for every single domain or subdomain which you have in your account. After that you're able to upload your website as our system will add in the needed FrontPage files in your domain folder, therefore you will not have to do anything else manually.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Servers
FrontPage Extensions is among the characteristics which are provided with all our Linux semi-dedicated servers
. Unlike other website hosting suppliers, we have decided not to stop it and to leave the choice of web design application to you. FrontPage Extensions can be activated for a single domain name or subdomain, not for the account in general, so our system will place the required system files just in the folder where you need them, while in other folders you'll be able to set up any kind of script-driven application or work with any other website design software for a website that will be either an addition to the main one or a standalone one. It'll take you a couple of clicks to enable FrontPage Extensions from the Hosted Domains area of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with the semi-dedicated accounts and it is just as easy to deactivate them. When you use our website hosting solutions, you will not have to throw away long years of work if you had hosted your site with a different company so far.
