What are the Microsoft FrontPage Extensions? What are they used for?
FrontPage Extensions are a group of system files and folders needed by sites created with Microsoft FrontPage in order to operate correctly. Without them, you could still use the application to make websites and upload your content on the web server, however the websites will have limited features, thus the user experience will not be the same. An additional advantage of using a website hosting service with FrontPage Extensions available is the fact that you are able to publish your web pages directly on the server without using any third-party software as long as you enter your account FTP info in FrontPage. This attribute will make it very easy to start and keep your web presence even if you lack any previous knowledge, since you're able to update the website in the future just as easily.
FrontPage Extensions in Shared Hosting
You're able to set up and upload your site by using FrontPage, as all the shared plans
that we provide support FrontPage Extensions. Even though a number of other providers stop the support for this feature, we leave it to you to choose if you will keep on using FrontPage or you will move to some other web design application and we have no plans for this to change. Once you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, that will be used to manage your brand new web hosting account, you can activate FrontPage extensions for any domain which you host or subdomain which you create with just two clicks. The feature can be activated right away and our system will include the FrontPage Extensions system files inside the selected folder, so that you'll be able to go ahead and upload your site files without any difficulty. In case you prefer to switch to another application for your site, deactivating FrontPage Extensions is just as easy.
