Microsoft Front Page
On January 1st 2015 we
discontinued support for Microsoft FrontPage
Microsoft discontinued support
for their FrontPage web page software back in 2006.
This means the FrontPage web page software is no
longer being updated and neither are the FrontPage
To fully support some of
the features of FrontPage such as hit counters, publishing,
forms, web hosting companies had to have special software installed called
FrontPage server extensions. This software allowed
FrontPage to communicate with hosting servers. The
problem is Microsoft has not updated these FrontPage
server extensions since 2002 nor do they plan on
doing so in the future.
The problem now is
FrontPage server extensions are VERY insecure and
is are no longer compatible with newer
technologies that have emerged for hosting servers.
So offering FrontPage server extensions opens us up
for huge security issues and prevents us from applying
the upgrades that would benefit all of our clients
and therefore the decision has been made to
discontinue their use.
You can still use your FrontPage
or compatable software to make changes to your
site. BUT you will just not be able to use the special FrontPage publishing
features or any of the features such as hit counters that requires the
installation of the FrontPage server extensions. You can use FTP to
publish your FrontPage web site and even FrontPage 2003 has that
ability. If you have an older version of FrontPage then you will need to
use another FTP software to publish your web site. Just contact us if
you need some suggestions.
Here is a list of some great software
that you can use to build, manage and publish a web site:
Microsoft Expression Web (Free)
- Adobe Dreamweaver
- WordPress (can be installed via your
So the end of an
era has come upon us but please understand that this is a good thing.
Webpage software and our hosting services has come a long way since the
era of FrontPage. Moving on will be a great thing for your web site. We
are here to help you make this transition.
