What are the Microsoft FrontPage Extensions? What precisely are they employed for?
FrontPage Extensions are a group of system files and folders needed by websites made with Microsoft FrontPage in order to operate efficiently. Without them, you may still use the app to build websites and upload your content on the web server, but the websites will have restricted features, thus the user experience will not be the same. One more advantage of using a hosting service with FrontPage Extensions available is that you can 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 quite simple to start and maintain your web presence even if you lack any previous knowledge, since you're able to update the site in the future just as easily.
