FrontPage Extensions are a set of system files and folders needed by websites created with Microsoft FrontPage so as to perform properly. Without them, you could still use the application to make websites and upload your content on the web server, but the websites 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'll be able to publish your webpages 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 very easy to start and keep your web presence even if you lack any previous knowledge, because you can update the website later on just as easily.
FrontPage Extensions in Shared Web Hosting
While many hosting companies these days discontinue their support for FrontPage Extensions, we have no such plans. We think that you shouldn't be restricted when it comes to the software programs which you can use in order to build your website and it's best to have a choice if you will use FrontPage or a different application. In case you already have a website, you will be able to move it over and prevent losing long years of work since FrontPage Extensions are supported with all our shared web hosting packages with no exception. You can enable them for each domain or subdomain inside your account by pressing the Edit button for it inside the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Enabling the option takes just a few clicks and our system will add all the needed FrontPage system files in the domain/subdomain folder, so all that you'll need to do afterwards will be to upload your website files.
