FrontPage Extensions are a set of system files and folders needed by sites made with Microsoft FrontPage in order to perform properly. Without them, you can still use the app to create sites and upload your content on the web server, but the websites will have restricted features, thus the user experience won't be the same. Another advantage of using a hosting service with FrontPage Extensions available is the fact that you can publish your web 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 quite simple to start and maintain your web presence even if you lack any previous knowledge, because you're able to update the site in the future just as quickly.
FrontPage Extensions in Cloud Website Hosting
While many web hosting providers today discontinue their support for FrontPage Extensions, we have no such plans. We think that you should not be limited in terms of the software programs which you are able to use to build your site and it is best to have a choice whether you will employ FrontPage or a different application. In case you already have a site, you are able to move it over and avoid losing years of work as FrontPage Extensions are supported with all our cloud website hosting packages with no exception. You may activate them for any domain or subdomain within your account by clicking on the Edit button for it in the Hosted Domains area of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Activating this option takes only a couple of clicks then our system will add all of the required FrontPage system files in the domain/subdomain folder, therefore all that you will have to do after that will be to upload your site files.
