FrontPage Extensions are a set of system files and folders needed by websites designed with Microsoft FrontPage to function effectively. Without them, you may still use the application to make websites and upload your content on the web server, however the websites will have restricted features, thus the user experience won't 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 the need for any third-party software as long as you enter your account FTP information 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, as you are able to update the website in the future just as easily.
FrontPage Extensions in Shared Hosting
While many hosting companies nowadays stop their support for FrontPage Extensions, we don't have such plans. We believe that you shouldn't be restricted when it comes to the software that you're able to take advantage of to create your website and you should have a choice whether you will work with FrontPage or another application. In the event that you already have a website, you can easily move it over and prevent losing many years of work as FrontPage Extensions are supported with all our shared hosting plans with no exception. You can enable them for any domain name or subdomain within your account by clicking on the Edit button for it inside the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Enabling the option takes a couple of clicks then our system will add all of the required FrontPage system files inside the domain/subdomain folder, so all that you'll need to do following that will be to upload your site files.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server package through us, you will be able to take advantage of FrontPage to make your site, because FrontPage Extensions are installed on the cloud platform where your website hosting account will be made. Enabling and deactivating the feature is done with several clicks and per domain or subdomain using your Hepsia Control Panel that you will get to manage the account, so you'll be able to easily have a FrontPage main site and a blog or a discussion forum script in a subdomain without problems. Our system will add all the system files needed for such a website automatically in the selected folder. A lot of hosting companies these days stop the support for FrontPage Extensions, however we would rather leave this choice to you, instead of expecting you to change the web design app that you use and waste all of the funds and efforts that you have invested throughout the years in order to build and maintain your site.
