Microsoft FrontPage Server Extensions
All (except email hosting) Isle of Wight Web Hosting packages come with the
option of FrontPage Extensions.
These allow publishing of a web site by simply clicking on an icon or the

FrontPage extensions allow the creation of web to email forms without using CGI
scripts. Just press the right buttons and publish.
Should you wish to use FTP to publish your web site instead then that is not a

use FrontPage extensions. However, it is not recommended to use both methods on

The servers use the 2000 version of FrontPage Extensions but they will work with
other versions of the FrontPage editing software.
You do not need to publish a site using FrontPage Extensions simply because
you made the site with FrontPage. However some of the functionality such as the
built in web forms require publishing in this manner.
