What are the Microsoft FrontPage Extensions? What exactly are they intended for?
FrontPage Extensions are a group of system files and folders needed by sites made with Microsoft FrontPage in order to operate efficiently. Without them, you may still use the application to create sites and upload your content on the web server, but the sites will have restricted features, thus the user experience won't be the same. One more advantage of using a website hosting service with FrontPage Extensions available is the fact 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 lack any previous knowledge, since you are able to update your website later on just as quickly.
FrontPage Extensions in Cloud Hosting
We support FrontPage Extensions with each cloud hosting
package that we provide and unlike the vast majority of web hosting companies nowadays, we will not discontinue thisfeature, so it's up to you if you will build and maintain your online presence using FrontPage or some other web design software. In fact, when you are moving an active site to our servers, it's likely that you have spent money, time and efforts and we wouldn't want all that to be in vain. You're able to enable FrontPage Extensions independently for every single domain name or subdomain through the Hepsia Control Panel, which means that it won't be a problem to have the main website made with FrontPage and work with some script application in a subdomain for a community forum, for instance - they will not conflict in any way. In case you decide that you want to switch to another platform, you can deactivate FrontPage Extensions with just a few clicks.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Servers
FrontPage Extensions is among the attributes that are provided with all of our Linux semi-dedicated servers
. Unlike other hosting service providers, we've decided not to discontinue it and to leave the choice of web design app for you. FrontPage Extensions can be enabled for a particular domain or subdomain, not for the account as a whole, which means that our system will place the necessary system files just in the folder where you need them, while in other folders you will be able to install any script-driven app or work with another web design software for a site which will be either an add-on to the main one or a standalone one. It'll take you a few clicks to enable FrontPage Extensions through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with the semi-dedicated accounts and it is just as quick to deactivate them. When you use our website hosting solutions, you won't have to waste long years of work in case you had hosted your website with another company so far.
