FrontPage Extensions are a group of system files and folders needed by websites created with Microsoft FrontPage so as to perform effectively. Without them, you can still use the app to make websites and upload your content on the web server, however the websites will have limited features, thus the user experience will not be the same. One more advantage of using a website hosting service with FrontPage Extensions available is the fact that you can publish your pages directly on the server without using any third-party software as long as you enter your account FTP details in FrontPage. This characteristic will make it quite simple to start and keep your web presence even if you don't have any previous knowledge, since you're able to update the site in the future just as quickly.
FrontPage Extensions in Website Hosting
While many website hosting service providers today discontinue their support for FrontPage Extensions, we have no such plans. We believe that you shouldn't be restricted in terms of the software which you're able to employ to build your site and you should have a choice if you will use FrontPage or some other application. If you already have a website, you will be able to move it over and avoid losing many years of work because FrontPage Extensions are supported with all our website hosting packages without exception. You can activate them for any domain name or subdomain within your account by clicking on the Edit button for it from the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Activating the option takes just a few clicks and our system will add all of the needed FrontPage system files in the domain/subdomain folder, therefore all that you'll have to do afterwards will be to upload your website files.
FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can activate the feature with just a few clicks in your account - sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, go to the Hosted Domains section, press the Edit button for a particular domain/subdomain, then click on the FrontPage Extensions feature that you will see and you are all set.
