FrontPage Extensions are a group of system files and folders needed by websites made with Microsoft FrontPage in order to operate correctly. Without them, you could still use the app to build sites and upload your content on the web server, yet the websites will have limited features, thus the user experience will not be the same. One more advantage of using a hosting service with FrontPage Extensions available is the fact that you can publish your pages directly on the server without using 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 maintain your web presence even if you don't have any previous knowledge, since you can update your website in the future just as easily.
FrontPage Extensions in Website Hosting
Unlike many web hosting suppliers out there, we don't plan to end the support of FrontPage Extensions on our servers and this feature is provided with each and every Linux website hosting that we supply. We are aware of the possibility that when you are switching companies and you're moving an existing website, you've probably worked tirelessly on it over time, that's why we give you the option to choose whether you will employ a different application to rebuild the site or use the content which you already own and avoid losing long years of work. Activating FrontPage Extensions on our end takes only a click from the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and you can use them independently for every domain or subdomain that you have in your account. After that you are able to upload your site as our system will add the needed FrontPage files in your domain folder, and you will not have to do anything else yourself.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Servers
FrontPage Extensions are accessible with all of the semi-dedicated server accounts that we offer and we do not plan to remove this characteristic from our plans, so you will not be forced to change companies or the web site design application that you employ as you should do with a lot of providers today. It's our belief that long years of work shouldn't be wasted, so if you move a site designed with FrontPage here, it will work correctly and you will be able to host it on our cloud platform long term. You can enable the feature with just a couple of clicks in your account - log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, head to the Hosted Domains section, press the Edit button for a specific domain/subdomain, then click on the FrontPage Extensions option that you'll notice and you will be ready. Our system will do the rest, which means that you can go ahead and upload your world wide web content with no need to do anything else manually. If you need to deactivate the feature, you should follow the exact same steps.
