Microsoft FrontPage Extensions - what exactly are they used for and how to take full advantage of them.
FrontPage Extensions are system files which have to be available on a web server in order for particular features of sites designed with Microsoft FrontPage to work properly. If these files aren't on your server, your Internet sites will still operate, but with limited capabilities and they will probably display errors every so often. In addition, when your website hosting provider has FrontPage Extensions on their servers, you'll be able to publish your content from the program, eliminating the need to work with any third-party FTP client in order to upload files. All that you should do is to enter you hosting account FTP details in the FrontPage settings and the application will do all the rest. Future updates can be done in the same way, making FrontPage a fantastic choice for people with little or no experience.
FrontPage Extensions in Shared Website Hosting
Unlike a large number of hosting suppliers out there, we don't plan to stop the support of FrontPage Extensions on any of our servers and this specific feature comes with each Linux shared website hosting
that we supply. We are aware of the fact that when you're switching companies and you are moving an existing website, you've probably worked on it over time, that's why we give you the opportunity to choose if you'll employ another app to rebuild your website or employ the content which you already own and avoid losing years of work. Enabling FrontPage Extensions on our end takes only a click in the Hosted Domains area of the Hepsia Control Panel and you are able to use them independently for each individual domain or subdomain which you have in the account. Then you're able to upload your site since our system will include the necessary FrontPage files in your domain folder, therefore you will not need to do anything else yourself.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Hosting
FrontPage Extensions is among the features that are provided with all of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting
. Unlike other hosting providers, we have decided not to discontinue it and to leave the choice of website design app to you. FrontPage Extensions can be activated for a single domain name or subdomain, not for the account in general, which means that our system will add the needed system files just in the folder where you need them, while in other folders you can set up any script-driven app or employ 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 a couple of clicks to enable FrontPage Extensions through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is featured with the semi-dedicated accounts and it is just as simple to deactivate them. When you use our hosting services, you will not have to waste long years of work in case you had hosted your site with some other company until now.
