FrontPage Extensions are special system files, which are required for sites created with Microsoft FrontPage in order to function properly on a web server. Without these files, your sites will still function, yet some functions will be unavailable, which can directly affect the user experience of your site visitors. When FrontPage Extensions are available on the hosting server, you can also upload the site which you've designed on your personal computer directly and without any added software like an FTP program. You will only need to type in the FTP sign in data for your website hosting account and FrontPage will do the rest, uploading or updating the files. Taking into consideration how easy it is to use FrontPage, you are able to start your worldwide web presence right away even in case you've never built a website before.
FrontPage Extensions in Cloud Web Hosting
You can set up and upload your website by using FrontPage, since all of the Linux cloud web hosting packages that we supply support FrontPage Extensions. Although lots of other providers stop the support for this feature, we leave it to you to choose if you will continue using FrontPage or you'll switch to a different web design app and we have no plans for this to change. When you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, that will be used to manage your new hosting account, you can enable FrontPage extensions for any domain name which you host or subdomain which you create with barely two clicks. The feature is activated straight away and our system will include the FrontPage Extensions system files in the selected folder, which means that you will be able to go ahead and upload your website files without any hassle. In case you prefer to move to another app for your website, disabling FrontPage Extensions is just as easy.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Hosting
FrontPage Extensions are available with all the semi-dedicated server accounts that we provide and we don't plan to remove this feature from our packages, therefore you won't be forced to switch companies or the website design app that you use as you need to do with plenty of providers today. It's our belief that years of work shouldn't be wasted, so in case you transfer a site designed with FrontPage here, it will operate properly and you'll be able to host it on our cloud platform long term. You can activate the feature with only 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 particular domain/subdomain, then click on the FrontPage Extensions feature which you will notice and you are all set. Our system will do everything else, therefore you can proceed and upload your web content with no need to do anything else manually. In order to deactivate the feature, you can follow the same steps.
