FrontPage extensions allow you to use the publication feature and dynamic page elements available in Microsoft’s FrontPage software. The FrontPage Extensions page shows whether or not FrontPage extensions are currently installed on your account.
You should only install the server extensions if you intend to use Microsoft’s FrontPage software to create and upload your web site. If you install FrontPage extensions you will not be able to upload your files and manage your site using FTP.
Using FrontPage Extensions
To publish your site using Microsoft FrontPage you must first have FrontPage extensions installed on your account, see above. Click the ‘Publish Web’ option from the ‘File’ menu in your FrontPage software. Enter your full web site domain name when asked where you want to publish your site to and click ‘Publish’. You will be asked for your account username and password, after which your site will be published to the server. Note that you can only publish your site to an active domain name using FrontPage, you cannot publish your site using FrontPage to the FTP server, to a temporary URL or to a domain name which is not yet fully transferred to our network.
