FrontPage Extensions are a group of system files and folders needed by sites designed with Microsoft FrontPage in order to perform properly. Without them, you may still use the application to create websites and upload your content on the web server, yet the sites will have restricted features, thus the user experience won't be the same. An additional advantage of using a web hosting service with FrontPage Extensions available is that you're able to publish your web pages directly on the server without using any third-party software as long as you enter your account FTP info in FrontPage. This attribute will make it really easy to start and maintain your web presence even if you lack any previous knowledge, since you are able to update your website in the future just as quickly.
FrontPage Extensions in Shared Web Hosting
We support FrontPage Extensions with each shared web hosting plan that we provide and unlike the majority of hosting providers today, we won't discontinue this particularfeature, so it'll be up to you whether you will create and maintain your online presence using FrontPage or another web design software. After all, in case you are moving an active site to our servers, it's quite possible that you have spent money, time and efforts and we wouldn't like all that to be in vain. You're able to enable FrontPage Extensions individually for each and every domain or subdomain from the Hepsia Control Panel, therefore it will not be a problem to have the main website designed with FrontPage and employ a script application in a subdomain for a forum, for instance - the two will not conflict at all. In case you decide that you would like to move to a different platform, you will be able to deactivate FrontPage Extensions with only a few clicks.
