FrontPage Extensions are a number of system files and folders needed by sites made with Microsoft FrontPage so as to function properly. Without them, you can still use the application to make sites and upload your content on the web server, but the websites will have limited 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'll be able to publish your web pages directly on the server without using any third-party software as long as you enter your account FTP details in FrontPage. This characteristic will make it very easy to start and keep your web presence even if you do not have any previous knowledge, because you are able to update the website in the future just as fast.
FrontPage Extensions in Shared Hosting
We support FrontPage Extensions with each and every shared hosting package that we offer and unlike numerous web hosting providers nowadays, we will not discontinue thisfeature, so it is up to you whether you'll start and maintain your worldwide web presence using FrontPage or some other web design software. After all, when you are moving an active site to our servers, it is likely that you have spent time, money and efforts and we wouldn't want all that to be in vain. You are able to activate FrontPage Extensions individually for each domain name or subdomain from the Hepsia Control Panel, and it will not be a problem to have the main website created with FrontPage and use a script app in a subdomain for a message board, for instance - they won't conflict at all. When you decide that you want to move to a different platform, you are able to deactivate FrontPage Extensions with only a few clicks.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server package from us, you'll be able to take advantage of FrontPage to make your site, since FrontPage Extensions are installed on the cloud platform where your hosting account will be made. Enabling and disabling the feature is done with several clicks and per domain or subdomain from the Hepsia Control Panel that you will get to manage the account, so you can easily have a FrontPage main site and a blog or a forum script inside a subdomain without problems. Our system will add all system files needed for such a website automatically within the selected folder. Many web hosting companies these days stop the support for FrontPage Extensions, but we would rather leave this choice to you, instead of making you switch the web design program that you use and waste all of the money and efforts that you've invested over the years in order to build and maintain your website.
