FrontPage Extensions are a group of system files and folders needed by websites designed with Microsoft FrontPage so as to perform efficiently. Without them, you could still use the application to build sites and upload your content on the web server, yet the sites will have limited features, thus the user experience won't be the same. An additional advantage of using a website hosting service with FrontPage Extensions available is the fact that you're 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 info in FrontPage. This characteristic will make it quite simple to start and keep your web presence even if you lack any previous knowledge, because you'll be able to update your website in the future just as fast.
FrontPage Extensions in Shared Hosting
While many website hosting companies these days cease their support for FrontPage Extensions, we have no such plans. We think that you shouldn't be limited in terms of the software which you can take advantage of to build your site and it's best to have a choice if you will work with FrontPage or some other application. In the event that you already have a website, you can easily move it over in order to avoid losing long years of work because FrontPage Extensions are supported with all of our shared hosting plans without exception. You can activate them for each domain name or subdomain within your account by clicking on the Edit button for it from the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Enabling the option takes just a couple of clicks and our system will add all the needed FrontPage system files in the domain/subdomain folder, which means that all that you'll need to do afterwards will be to upload your site files.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Servers
FrontPage Extensions are available with all of the semi-dedicated server accounts that we provide and we don't plan to remove this particular feature from our plans, so you will not be forced to change companies or the website design app that you employ like you need to do with a number of providers nowadays. It's our belief that many years of work shouldn't go in vain, so in case you transfer a website built with FrontPage here, it will function flawlessly and you can host it on our cloud platform in the future. You can activate the feature with just a few clicks in your account - sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, go to the Hosted Domains section, click on the Edit button for a specific domain/subdomain, then click on the FrontPage Extensions option that you will notice and you'll be ready. Our system will do everything else, therefore you can proceed and upload your site content without the need to do anything else manually. If you would like deactivate the feature, you should follow the exact same steps.
