What are the Microsoft FrontPage Extensions? What exactly are they employed for?
FrontPage Extensions are system files which should be present on a web server in order for particular features of websites created with Microsoft FrontPage to operate correctly. If these files are not on the server, the Internet sites will still work, but with limited capabilities and they may display errors every so often. In addition, when your website hosting provider has FrontPage Extensions on their servers, you can publish your content straight from the program, eliminating the necessity to employ any kind of third-party FTP client to upload files. All that you should do is to enter you website hosting account FTP information in the FrontPage settings and the application will do all the rest. Future updates can be done in exactly the same way, which makes FrontPage an excellent selection for people with little or no experience.
FrontPage Extensions in Shared Web Hosting
Unlike numerous web hosting suppliers on the market, we don't plan to end the support of FrontPage Extensions on any of our servers and this feature comes with every single Linux shared web hosting service
that we offer. We acknowledge the fact that when you're changing companies and you are moving your current website, you have probably worked tirelessly on it through the years, that's why we give you the chance to choose whether you will work with a different application to rebuild the website or employ the content which you already own in order to avoid losing long years of work. Enabling FrontPage Extensions on our end takes just a click in the Hosted Domains area of the Hepsia Control Panel and you'll be able to use them separately for every single domain or subdomain that you have in your account. After that you're able to upload your website because our system will add the needed FrontPage files in your domain folder, so you will not need to do anything else yourself.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Hosting
FrontPage Extensions is among the attributes that come with our semi-dedicated hosting services
. Unlike other website hosting providers, we have decided not to discontinue it and to leave the choice of web design application to you. FrontPage Extensions can be enabled for a specific domain or subdomain, not for the account as a whole, so our system will add the needed system files only in the folder where you need them, while in other folders you are able to set up any kind of script-driven app or work with another web design software for a site which will be either an add-on to the main one or a separate one. It will take you a few clicks to enable FrontPage Extensions through the Hosted Domains area of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with the semi-dedicated accounts and it's just as quick to deactivate them. When you use our web hosting services, you will not have to waste years of work if you had hosted your site with another company so far.
