What are the Microsoft FrontPage Extensions? What exactly are they employed for?
FrontPage Extensions are a group of system files and folders needed by websites designed with Microsoft FrontPage in order to perform effectively. Without them, you could still use the app to build websites and upload your content on the web server, yet the websites will have restricted features, thus the user experience will not be the same. An additional advantage of using a hosting service with FrontPage Extensions available is that you'll be 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 details in FrontPage. This attribute will make it really easy to start and maintain your web presence even if you do not have any previous knowledge, because you'll be able to update the website in the future just as quickly.
FrontPage Extensions in Shared Hosting
We support FrontPage Extensions with each shared hosting
package that we provide and unlike most of the hosting service providers these days, we will not discontinue this particularfeature, so it will be up to you if you'll start and maintain your web presence employing FrontPage or some other web design software. In fact, in case you are moving your active site to our servers, it is likely that you've spent money, time and efforts and we wouldn't want all of that to be in vain. You will be able to activate FrontPage Extensions individually for each and every domain name or subdomain through the Hepsia Control Panel, so it will not be a problem to have the main site created with FrontPage and employ a script application in a subdomain for a message board, for instance - the two won't interfere in any way. When you decide that you would like to move to another platform, you are able to deactivate FrontPage Extensions with just a few clicks.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Servers
FrontPage Extensions is among the characteristics that are included with all our semi-dedicated servers
. Unlike other hosting providers, we've decided not to discontinue it and to leave the choice of web design app to you. FrontPage Extensions can be activated for a single domain name or subdomain, not for the account in general, therefore our system will place the needed system files only in the folder where you need them, while in other folders you can set up any script-driven application or use some other website design software for a site that will be either an add-on to the main one or a standalone one. It will take you just a couple of clicks to activate FrontPage Extensions through the Hosted Domains area of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with the semi-dedicated accounts and it is just as easy to deactivate them. When you use our website hosting solutions, you will not have to waste years of work if you had hosted your website with another company so far.
