Microsoft FrontPage Extensions Overview

If you are planning on using Microsoft's FrontPage as the web-development tool for your website, you will first need to enable FrontPage Extensions.

Note: Installing FrontPage extensions for your website does not install Microsoft FrontPage on your computer. FrontPage is a separate software application which you will need to purchase and install on your computer. (Some computers come equipped with Microsoft FrontPage pre-installed.)

Turning on Microsoft FrontPage extensions disables utilities in the hosting account Control Panel. When you enable FrontPage extensions, you are telling the server that FrontPage will perform certain functions rather than the hosting account Control Panel Options. These options include: Redirect URL, Mime Types, and Protect Directories.
