After Logged in Click on the “FrontPage Extensions” Icon Located Under the “Advanced” Heading

This Page will provide buttons for Installing, Removing, and Re-Installing FrontPage Extensions.   NOTE: In order for FrontPage Extensions to work on Add-On Domains, and Sub Domains, They must be installed on the Primary Domain also.

FrontPage extensions will allow web pages to be published directly from the Microsoft ® FrontPage application, eliminating the need to use FTP. This can be useful in streamlining the publishing process.

ALERT! Warning: Installing Frontpage extensions will delete any .htaccess files contained within your web area. This means that any directory or web page that requires authentication (a username and password) will need to be reconfigured after the extensions are installed.

.htaccess files

.htaccess files are an integral part of any basic authentication process. The file lives within a directory on the server and is used to enact the authentication process when the directory is accessed. The .htaccess file is then checked against a file that contains an encrypted instance of the valid password for the directory.

.htaccess files also contain information about how the contents of the directory will be displayed, as well as information about how long visitors’ browsers will cache your site, or save it in memory.
