FrontPage Extensions are a number of system files and folders needed by websites created with Microsoft FrontPage in order to perform effectively. Without them, you may still use the application to create sites and upload your content on the web server, yet the websites will have limited features, thus the user experience will not 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 details in FrontPage. This characteristic will make it really easy to start and keep your web presence even if you don't have any previous knowledge, since you are able to update the site later on just as easily.
FrontPage Extensions in Shared Hosting
We support FrontPage Extensions with each and every shared hosting
package that we provide and unlike most of the website hosting service providers these days, we won't discontinue thisfeature, so it will be up to you if you will create and maintain your online presence employing FrontPage or some other web design software. In fact, in case you're moving an active site to our servers, it is likely that you've spent time, money and efforts and we would not like all that to go in vain. You're able to enable FrontPage Extensions independently for each domain or subdomain from the Hepsia Control Panel, which means that it will not be a problem to have the main site made with FrontPage and use some script app in a subdomain for a forum, for instance - the two will not interfere at all. When you decide that you wish to move to a different platform, you can deactivate FrontPage Extensions with only a few clicks.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Hosting
FrontPage Extensions is one of the features that come with all of our Linux semi-dedicated services
. Unlike other web hosting suppliers, we've decided not to stop it and to leave the choice of website design application to you. FrontPage Extensions can be activated for a specific domain or subdomain, not for the account in general, therefore our system will add the required system files just in the folder where you need them, while in other folders you'll be able to install any script-driven application or use any other website design software for a site which will be either an add-on to the main one or a separate one. It will take you a couple of clicks to activate FrontPage Extensions through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with the semi-dedicated accounts and it's just as simple to deactivate them. When you use our web hosting services, you will not have to throw away long years of work if you had hosted your website with some other company so far.
