FrontPage Extensions are a number of system files and folders needed by sites designed with Microsoft FrontPage to operate efficiently. Without them, you could still use the app to make sites and upload your content on the web server, yet the websites will have restricted features, thus the user experience will not be the same. Another advantage of using a website hosting service with FrontPage Extensions available is that you are able to 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 feature will make it really easy to start and keep your web presence even if you don't have any previous knowledge, because you'll be able to update your website in the future just as quickly.
FrontPage Extensions in Shared Hosting
You can make and upload your site using FrontPage, since all of the Linux shared packages that we supply support FrontPage Extensions. While plenty of other providers stop the support of this feature, we allow you to choose if you'll continue using FrontPage or you'll move to an alternative website design app and we have no plans for this to change. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, which will be used to manage your new web hosting account, you can activate FrontPage extensions for any domain name which you host or subdomain which you create with barely 2 clicks. The feature is activated straight away and our system will include the FrontPage Extensions system files inside the selected folder, so that you will be able to go ahead and upload your site files without any difficulty. If you prefer to switch to a different application for your website, deactivating FrontPage Extensions is just as easy.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Hosting
FrontPage Extensions are available with all of the semi-dedicated server accounts that we offer and we do not plan to remove this particular characteristic from our plans, which means that you won't be forced to switch companies or the web site design app which you employ like you should do with a number of providers today. It's our belief that many years of work should not go in vain, so in case you transfer a site built with FrontPage here, it'll work properly and you can host it on our cloud platform in the long run. You can enable the feature with only a couple of clicks inside your account - log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, go to the Hosted Domains section, click the Edit button for a certain domain/subdomain, then click on the FrontPage Extensions feature that you'll find and you'll be all set. Our system will do the rest, which means that you can proceed and upload your website content with no need to do anything else manually. If you'd like to disable the feature, you can follow the exact same steps.
