are FrontPage Extensions and Do I Need Them?
FrontPage Extensions are CGI
programs which provide the server side implementation needed for all versions
of Microsoft FrontPage. FrontPage extensions are required in order to
properly upload and use many of the tools and WebBots that FrontPage offers.
If you are designing your web
site using Microsoft FrontPage, you will need to have FrontPage extensions
installed in order for you to be able to use the full functionality of
the features. But not all hosts offer FrontPage extensions, so if you
plan on using FrontPage, it is important to check that your chosen host
offers the extensions. Some web hosts will offer it for free when you
sign up, while others require a nominal monthly or yearly fee to install
and update them.
