Microsoft FrontPage Extensions - what exactly are they used for and how to use them.
FrontPage Extensions are a group of system files and folders needed by sites made with Microsoft FrontPage so as to function efficiently. Without them, you can still use the app to create sites and upload your content on the web server, however the sites will have restricted 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're able to publish your web pages directly on the server without using any third-party software as long as you enter your account FTP information in FrontPage. This characteristic will make it very easy to start and maintain your web presence even if you do not have any previous knowledge, because you're able to update your website later on just as easily.
