FrontPage Extensions are a number of system files and folders needed by websites designed with Microsoft FrontPage so as to perform properly. Without them, you may still use the app to make websites and upload your content on the web server, yet the sites will have limited features, thus the user experience will not be the same. Another advantage of using a web hosting service with FrontPage Extensions available is the fact that you can publish your pages directly on the server without the need for any third-party software as long as you enter your account FTP info in FrontPage. This attribute will make it really easy to start and maintain your web presence even if you don't have any previous knowledge, as you're able to update the website later on just as easily.
FrontPage Extensions in Shared Hosting
Unlike numerous website hosting service providers out there, we don't plan to cease the support of FrontPage Extensions on our servers and this particular attribute is provided with each and every shared hosting service that we offer. We are aware of the possibility that if you're changing companies and you're moving your active site, you've probably worked tirelessly on it through the years, that's why we give you the option to choose if you will employ some other application to rebuild your site or employ the content that you already own in order to avoid losing long years of work. Activating FrontPage Extensions on our end takes only a click in the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel and you're able to use them independently for each individual domain or subdomain which you have in the account. After that you're able to upload your website because our system will include the necessary FrontPage files in your domain folder, therefore you won't 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 particular feature from our packages, which means that you won't be forced to change companies or the website design app which you employ like you should do with a lot of providers today. It is our belief that many years of work should not be wasted, so in case you move a site created with FrontPage here, it will run correctly and you'll be able to host it on our cloud platform in the long run. You can enable the feature with just a couple of clicks inside your account - sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, head to the Hosted Domains section, click the Edit button for a certain domain/subdomain, then click on the FrontPage Extensions feature which you'll notice and you will be all set. Our system will do everything else, which means that you can go ahead and upload your website content without the need to do anything else manually. In order to deactivate the feature, you should follow the exact same steps.
