How to Use FrontPage on Entry Level Hosting service?
FrontPage is Website Building software published by Microsoft. It is very easy to use; you do not need to learn scripting and additional programming languages. A lot of ready made templates are available; and it is possible to produce nice looking Site in a matter of hours.
To totally full proof the usage of FrontPage your site has to be published on Windows 2000 Server.
Unfortunately Hosting companies that offer Windows2000 servers are usually more expensive than the Apache - Linux servers that are offered by almost all of Entry Level Hosing Providers.
FrontPage keeps the content of the main pages in regular html format; however FrontPage needs to keep additional information about the Site's structure. This information has to be supported by a special arrangement of directories and files, otherwise your site will be corrupted. Windows2000 server provides the management capacity by default. For other OSí Microsoft provides Server Extensions that puts these directories and managing files on Apache servers.
If you are using FrontPage and you are not using certain functions, is possible to use it without the extensions. It is not full proof method, but some people risk it. (List here).
Using FrontPage with the Extensions on Apache server is not a straight forward process, and you have to be careful how you go about it.
Since it is much easier to build the site on a local computer, and use ftp client to upload it to the web space, it is a method that was tried by many people.
doing so the managing information of FrontPage is not updated on your Hosting server, and eventually the Site will be corrupted.
initial deployment of your Site prepare it locally on your Hard Drive.
From now on when you need to
update your Site.
