Microsoft FrontPage Extensions - what exactly are they meant for and how to take advantage of them.
FrontPage Extensions are specific system files, which are needed for sites created with Microsoft FrontPage to function properly on a web server. Without these files, your sites will still function, yet some capabilities will be inaccessible, which can immediately affect the experience of your visitors. If FrontPage Extensions are present on the web hosting server, you'll also be able to upload the website which you've created on your personal computer instantly and without any added software such as some FTP program. You will just have to type in the FTP sign in details for your hosting account and FrontPage will do all the rest, uploading or updating your files. Taking into consideration how easy it is to use FrontPage, you will be able to start your online presence quickly even in case you have never created a site before.
FrontPage Extensions in Website Hosting
Unlike numerous website hosting service providers on the market, we don't intend to end the support of FrontPage Extensions on our servers and this particular attribute is available with every single website hosting plan
that we supply. We acknowledge the possibility that if you are switching companies and you are moving your current site, you've probably worked on it over the years, that's why we give you the chance to select if you'll use some other application to rebuild your website or use the content which you already have and avoid losing long 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'll be able to use them independently for every single domain or subdomain which you have in your account. After that you are able to upload your site because our system will add in the required FrontPage files in the domain folder, so you won't have to do anything else manually.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Servers
FrontPage Extensions are available with all the semi-dedicated server
accounts that we supply and we don't plan to remove this characteristic from our packages, which means that you will not be forced to switch companies or the web site design application which you use like you have to do with lots of providers nowadays. It's our belief that many years of work shouldn't be wasted, so in case you move a website built with FrontPage here, it'll work properly and you'll be able to host it on our cloud platform in the future. You can enable the feature with just a couple of clicks in your account - sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, go to the Hosted Domains section, press the Edit button for a given domain/subdomain, then click on the FrontPage Extensions feature which you'll find and you're ready. Our system will do the rest, which means that you can proceed and upload your site content without the need to do anything else manually. If you want to deactivate the feature, you should follow the exact same steps.
