FrontPage Extensions are system files which need to be available on a web server for specific features of websites made with Microsoft FrontPage to operate correctly. When these files aren't on your server, the Internet sites will still function, but with limited functionality and they will probably display errors every so often. Furthermore, in case your web hosting supplier has FrontPage Extensions on their servers, you will be able to publish your content directly from the application, eliminating the necessity to employ any third-party FTP client so as to upload files. All you should do is to enter you web hosting account FTP info in the FrontPage settings and the program will do all the rest. Future updates can be performed in exactly the same way, making FrontPage a fantastic option for people with little or no experience.
