FrontPage Extensions are a number of system files and folders needed by websites designed with Microsoft FrontPage in order to function properly. Without them, you can still use the application to build sites and upload your content on the web server, yet the sites will have limited features, thus the user experience won't be the same. One more advantage of using a website hosting service with FrontPage Extensions available is the fact that you'll be able to publish your webpages directly on the server without the need for any third-party software as long as you enter your account FTP information in FrontPage. This feature will make it very easy to start and maintain your web presence even if you lack any previous knowledge, as you are able to update your website in the future just as quickly.
