FrontPage Extensions are system files which need to be available on a web server for specific features of sites created with Microsoft FrontPage to function efficiently. If these files are not on the server, your websites will still work, but with limited capabilities and they may display errors every now and then. In addition, in case your web hosting supplier has FrontPage Extensions on their servers, you'll be able to publish your content from the application, eliminating the necessity to employ any kind of third-party FTP client so as to upload files. All you should do is to enter you web hosting account FTP info in the FrontPage settings and the software will do all the rest. Future updates can be done in the same way, making FrontPage an excellent selection for people with minimum or no experience.
FrontPage Extensions in Web Hosting
While many website hosting companies nowadays discontinue their support for FrontPage Extensions, we have no such plans. We think that you shouldn't be restricted when it comes to the software that you can employ to build your website and it is best to have a choice if you will work with FrontPage or another app. If you already have a site, you're able to move it over in order to avoid losing many years of work because FrontPage Extensions are supported with all our web hosting plans without exception. You can enable them for any domain name or subdomain in your account by clicking on the Edit button for it inside the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Activating the option takes just a few clicks and our system will add all of the required FrontPage system files in the domain/subdomain folder, which means that all that you'll need to do afterwards will be to upload your website files.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Hosting
FrontPage Extensions are available with all semi-dedicated server accounts that we supply and we don't plan to remove this particular characteristic from any of our packages, which means that you will not be forced to change companies or the web design app which you employ as you should do with plenty of providers these days. It is our belief that many years of work shouldn't be wasted, so if you transfer a website designed with FrontPage here, it'll operate properly and you can host it on our cloud platform in the future. You can activate the feature with only a couple of clicks in your account - log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, head to the Hosted Domains section, click on the Edit button for a certain domain/subdomain, then click on the FrontPage Extensions option which you will notice and you will be all set.
