FrontPage Extensions are system files that need to be present on a web server for specific features of websites designed with Microsoft FrontPage to function appropriately. When these files are not on your server, the sites will still operate, but with limited functionality and they may display errors every so often. Furthermore, in case your website hosting provider has FrontPage Extensions on their servers, you will be able to publish your content from the program, eliminating the necessity to employ any third-party FTP client so as to upload files. All that you have to do is to enter you web hosting account FTP info in the FrontPage settings and the program will do the rest. Future updates can be performed in the same way, which makes FrontPage a great option for people with little or no experience.
FrontPage Extensions in Shared Hosting
We support FrontPage Extensions with every single shared hosting package that we provide and unlike numerous website hosting companies today, we do not plan to discontinue this particularfeature, so it will be up to you if you will build and maintain your web presence by using FrontPage or some other web design software. In fact, in case you're moving an active website to our servers, it is likely that you have invested money, time and efforts and we wouldn't want all of that to be in vain. You're able to activate FrontPage Extensions individually for each and every domain or subdomain through the Hepsia Control Panel, therefore it will not be a problem to have the main website created with FrontPage and employ some script application in a subdomain for a message board, for instance - the two will not conflict at all. In case you decide that you wish to switch to some other platform, you're able to deactivate FrontPage Extensions with just a few clicks.
