What are the Microsoft FrontPage Extensions? Just what exactly are they employed for?
FrontPage Extensions are specific system files, which are needed for sites created with Microsoft FrontPage to work effectively on a web server. Without these files, your sites will still function, yet some options will be inaccessible, that will immediately affect the experience of your visitors. When FrontPage Extensions are present on the web hosting server, you will also be able to upload the website that you've built on your PC instantly and without any added software like some FTP program. You will only have to type in the FTP sign in info for your website hosting account and FrontPage will do the rest, uploading or updating the files. Considering how easy it is to work with FrontPage, you will be able to launch your web presence almost immediately even when you've never made a website before.
FrontPage Extensions in Shared Web Hosting
Unlike a large number of hosting companies on the market, we don't plan to stop the support of FrontPage Extensions on our servers and this specific feature is available with each and every shared web hosting plan
that we offer. We acknowledge the fact that in case you are switching companies and you are moving an active website, you've probably worked on it over the years, that's why we give you the chance to pick if you'll work with another application to rebuild your website or use the content that you already have to avoid losing years of work. Activating FrontPage Extensions on our end takes only a click in the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel and you'll be able to use them independently for each individual domain or subdomain that you have in the account. After that you are able to upload your website since our system will add the necessary FrontPage files in your domain folder, so you will not have to do anything else manually.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Servers
FrontPage Extensions are accessible with all the semi-dedicated server
accounts that we provide and we do not plan to remove this particular feature from our packages, so you won't be forced to change companies or the web design application that you employ as you should do with a lot of providers today. It is our belief that long years of work shouldn't go in vain, so if you transfer a site built with FrontPage here, it'll operate properly and you will be able to host it on our cloud platform long term. You can activate the feature with only a few clicks in your account - sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, head to the Hosted Domains section, click the Edit button for a specific domain/subdomain, then click on the FrontPage Extensions feature which you'll see and you will be all set. Our system will do the rest, so you can proceed and upload your site content without having to do anything else manually. If you would like deactivate the feature, you can follow the very same steps.
