What are the Microsoft FrontPage Extensions? What exactly are they used for?
FrontPage Extensions are specific system files, that are required for sites created with Microsoft FrontPage so as to operate appropriately on a web server. Without these files, your websites will still function, but some options will be inaccessible, that will immediately have an affect on the experience of your website visitors. When FrontPage Extensions are available on the website hosting server, you'll also be able to upload the website which you have made on your computer system immediately and with no added software such as some FTP program. You'll only need to enter the FTP sign in information for your website hosting account and FrontPage will do the rest, uploading or updating the files. Taking into account how easy it is to use FrontPage, you can launch your online presence almost instantly even in case you have never made a website before.
FrontPage Extensions in Shared Hosting
Unlike a number of website hosting service providers on the market, we don't intend to stop the support of FrontPage Extensions on any of our servers and this specific attribute is provided with each and every Linux shared hosting
that we offer. We are aware of the possibility that if you're switching companies and you're moving your active website, you've probably worked tirelessly on it through the years, that's why we give you the opportunity to decide if you'll use a different application to rebuild the website or employ the content that you already have and avoid losing years of work. Enabling FrontPage Extensions on our end takes just a click inside the Hosted Domains area of the Hepsia Control Panel and you are able to use them independently for each individual domain or subdomain which you have in the account. Then you're able to upload your website because our system will add in the required FrontPage files in the domain folder, and you will not have to do anything else yourself.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Hosting
FrontPage Extensions are accessible with all of the semi-dedicated server
accounts that we offer and we do not plan to remove this feature from our plans, which means that you will not be forced to change companies or the web site design app which you employ as you need to do with a number of providers nowadays. It's our belief that many years of work shouldn't be wasted, so in case you move a website designed with FrontPage here, it'll work correctly and you'll be able to host it on our cloud platform in the long run. You can enable the feature with only a few clicks inside your account - sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, visit the Hosted Domains section, click on the Edit button for a given domain/subdomain, then click on the FrontPage Extensions feature which you will notice and you're all set. Our system will do everything else, which means that you can proceed and upload your website content without the need to do anything else manually. If you wish to disable the feature, you should follow the very same steps.
