FrontPage Extensions allow you to publish your site directly from the FrontPage application. This means that you will not have to upload files through FTP or another method.

WARNING: We do not recommend installing FrontPage Extensions unless you need them. When installing or uninstalling FrontPage Extensions, you will loose all of your .htaccess files for your site. This means that any changes you have made to your .htaccess files will be lost.

 Here are the steps:

  1. To access FrontPage Extensions, click on the words "FrontPage Extensions" on the main screen of your cPanel interface
  2. To install FrontPage Extensions, click on "Install Extensions"

The following will appear (except domain.com will be the name of your domain, and user will be your username):
