What are the Microsoft FrontPage Extensions? What precisely are they used for?
FrontPage Extensions are a group of system files and folders needed by sites designed with Microsoft FrontPage so as to function efficiently. Without them, you could still use the app to build websites and upload your content on the web server, but the sites will have limited features, thus the user experience will not be the same. One more advantage of using a website hosting service with FrontPage Extensions available is the fact that you are able to publish your webpages directly on the server without the need for any third-party software as long as you enter your account FTP information in FrontPage. This characteristic will make it really easy to start and maintain your web presence even if you don't have any previous knowledge, as you can update the site in the future just as fast.
FrontPage Extensions in Cloud Website Hosting
Unlike a lot of hosting companies on the market, we don't intend to cease the support of FrontPage Extensions on our servers and this particular attribute comes with each and every Linux cloud website hosting
that we supply. We are aware of the fact that when you're switching companies and you're moving your current site, you have probably worked tirelessly on it through the years, so we give you the opportunity to select if you'll employ a different app to rebuild the website or employ the content which you already have to avoid losing years of work. Enabling FrontPage Extensions on our end takes only a click inside the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel and you're able to use them independently for each individual domain or subdomain that you have in your account. Then you can upload your site as our system will include the needed FrontPage files in the domain folder, therefore you won't need to do anything else yourself.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Hosting
FrontPage Extensions is one of the features which are included with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting services
. Unlike other website hosting suppliers, we have decided not to discontinue it and to leave the choice of web design app to you. FrontPage Extensions can be enabled for a particular domain name or subdomain, not for the account as a whole, which means that our system will add the needed system files just in the folder where you need them, while in other folders you will be able to put any kind of script-driven app or use some other web design software for a website that will be either an add-on to the main one or a standalone one. It'll take you just a couple of clicks to enable FrontPage Extensions through the Hosted Domains area of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with the semi-dedicated accounts and it's just as quick to deactivate them. When you use our hosting solutions, you will not have to waste years of work in case you had hosted your website with some other company until now.
