FrontPage Extensions are a group of system files and folders needed by sites designed with Microsoft FrontPage so as to function correctly. Without them, you could still use the app to make sites and upload your content on the web server, however the sites will have limited features, thus the user experience won't be the same. One more advantage of using a website hosting service with FrontPage Extensions available is that you can publish your web pages directly on the server without the need for any third-party software as long as you enter your account FTP details in FrontPage. This feature will make it very easy to start and keep your web presence even if you don't have any previous knowledge, as you are able to update the website in the future just as easily.
FrontPage Extensions in Shared Hosting
While many hosting companies nowadays stop their support for FrontPage Extensions, we don't have such plans. We think that you should not be limited regarding the software that you can take advantage of in order to build your site and it is best to have a choice if you will use FrontPage or another application. In the event that you already have a website, you can move it over and prevent losing many years of work since FrontPage Extensions are supported with all our shared hosting plans with no exception. You could activate them for any domain or subdomain inside your account by clicking on the Edit button for it inside the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Enabling this option takes only a few clicks and then our system will add all of the needed FrontPage system files inside the domain/subdomain folder, therefore all that you will need to do afterwards will be to upload your website files.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Hosting
FrontPage Extensions are available with all semi-dedicated server accounts that we supply and we don't plan to remove this feature from any of our plans, which means that you won't be forced to switch companies or the website design application that you employ as you should do with a number of providers these days. It is our belief that years of work should not go in vain, so if you transfer a site designed with FrontPage here, it'll work properly and you will be able to host it on our cloud platform in the future. You can enable the feature with just a couple of clicks in your account - sign in to the 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 find and you'll be all set. Our system will do the rest, therefore you can proceed and upload your web content without having to do anything else manually. If you need to disable the feature, you should follow the exact same steps.
