What are the Microsoft FrontPage Extensions? What are they used for?
FrontPage Extensions are a set of system files and folders needed by websites made with Microsoft FrontPage so as to perform effectively. Without them, you can still use the app to build sites and upload your content on the web server, however the sites will have restricted features, thus the user experience will not be the same. One more advantage of using a web hosting service with FrontPage Extensions available is the fact that you'll be 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 maintain your web presence even if you don't have any previous knowledge, because you'll be able to update your website later on just as fast.

FrontPage Extensions in Semi-dedicated Hosting
FrontPage Extensions is among the attributes that are featured with our Linux semi-dedicated hosting
. Unlike other web hosting providers, we have decided not to stop it and to leave the choice of website design application to you. FrontPage Extensions can be enabled for a specific domain name or subdomain, not for the account as a whole, so our system will add the required system files only in the folder where you need them, while in other folders you're able to install any kind of script-driven application or work with another website design software for a website which will be either an addition to the main one or a separate one. It will take you just a few clicks to activate FrontPage Extensions through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with the semi-dedicated accounts and it is just as easy to deactivate them. When you use our hosting solutions, you will not have to throw away long years of work in case you had hosted your website with another company until now.
