What are the Microsoft FrontPage Extensions? Just what exactly are they intended for?
FrontPage Extensions are system files which have to be available on a web server in order for particular features of websites created with Microsoft FrontPage to function properly. When these files aren't on the server, the sites will still function, but with limited functionality and they may display errors from time to time. In addition, when your hosting supplier has FrontPage Extensions on their servers, you can publish your content from the program, eliminating the need to employ any third-party FTP client to upload files. All that you should do is to enter you hosting account FTP details in the FrontPage settings and the software will do all the rest. Future updates can be done in the same way, which makes FrontPage a fantastic option for people with little or no experience.
FrontPage Extensions in Cloud Web Hosting
You will be able to build and upload your site by using FrontPage, since all of the Linux cloud web hosting packages
that we supply support FrontPage Extensions. Though many other providers cease the support for this feature, we allow you to decide if you'll continue using FrontPage or you'll move to an alternative web design app and we have no plans for this to change. After you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, that will be used to manage your brand new web hosting account, you can enable FrontPage extensions for any domain which you host or subdomain that you create with just two clicks. The feature is activated straight away and our system will include the FrontPage Extensions system files in the selected folder, therefore you can proceed and upload your site files without any hassle. In case you prefer to switch to a different app for your website, disabling FrontPage Extensions is just as simple.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Hosting
FrontPage Extensions are accessible with all the semi-dedicated server
accounts that we offer and we do not plan to remove this characteristic from any of our plans, therefore you won't be forced to change companies or the web design app which you employ as you need to do with lots of providers nowadays. It's our belief that many years of work should not be wasted, so if you move a site built with FrontPage here, it will function correctly and you will be able to host it on our cloud platform long term. You can enable the feature with only a few clicks in your account - log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, visit the Hosted Domains section, press the Edit button for a specific domain/subdomain, then click on the FrontPage Extensions feature that you'll notice and you'll be all set. Our system will do everything else, which means that you can go ahead and upload your website content without having to do anything else manually. If you wish to deactivate the feature, you should follow the exact same steps.
