FrontPage Extensions are a set of system files and folders needed by sites made with Microsoft FrontPage to perform properly. Without them, you may still use the app to make sites and upload your content on the web server, however the websites will have limited features, thus the user experience will not be the same. One more advantage of using a hosting service with FrontPage Extensions available is the fact that you can publish your 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 characteristic will make it really easy to start and keep your web presence even if you do not have any previous knowledge, since you're able to update the website in the future just as quickly.
