FrontPage Extensions are a number of system files and folders needed by sites created with Microsoft FrontPage in order to operate properly. Without them, you can still use the app to make sites and upload your content on the web server, however the websites 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 that you can publish your webpages directly on the server without using 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, as you are able to update the website later on just as easily.

FrontPage Extensions in Shared Hosting

While many website hosting suppliers these days cease their support for FrontPage Extensions, we have no such plans. We believe that you should not be restricted when it comes to the software programs which you can use in order to create your site and you should have a choice whether you will use FrontPage or a different app. In case you already have a website, you can move it over and avoid losing years of work because FrontPage Extensions are supported with all our shared hosting packages with no exception. You may enable them for any domain name or subdomain in your account by pressing the Edit button for it inside the Hosted Domains area of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Activating this option takes only a couple of clicks then our system will add all the needed FrontPage system files in the domain/subdomain folder, thus all that you will have to do afterwards will be to upload your site files.

FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server package through us, you are able to employ FrontPage to build your site, due to the fact that FrontPage Extensions are installed on the cloud platform where your website hosting account will be created. Activating and deactivating the feature is done with several clicks and per domain or subdomain using your Hepsia Control Panel which you'll get to manage the account, which means that you can easily have a FrontPage main site and a blog or a forum script in a subdomain without problems. Our system will add all of the system files required for such a site automatically in the selected folder. A lot of web hosting service providers today stop the support for FrontPage Extensions, but we choose to leave this option to you, rather than expecting you to switch the web design software that you use and waste all of the money and efforts that you have invested through the years to build and maintain your site.
