FrontPage Extensions are a number of system files and folders needed by sites designed with Microsoft FrontPage to function effectively. Without them, you may still use the application to make sites and upload your content on the web server, however 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 can publish your web pages directly on the server without the need for any third-party software as long as you enter your account FTP details in FrontPage. This attribute will make it very easy to start and keep your web presence even if you don't have any previous knowledge, as you can update your website later on just as easily.
