How do I use Microsoft® FrontPage® to upload my web pages?

If you chose to have Microsoft® FrontPage® server extensions installed, you will be able to publish your web pages to our server very easily. Once you have finished creating your web site on your local hard drive, you will need to follow these steps to publish them to our server.

Step 1 - Open the FrontPage® Explorer.

Step 2 - Select File, then Publish Frontpage web

Step 3 - Click on the More Webs button

Step 4 - In the space provided type either your IP address or your hostname(www.your_domain.com, or your_name.prohosting.com) Then click on the Ok button.

Step 5 - Push the Ok button once again.

Step 6 - It will prompt you for your username and password. Enter them, select Ok, and then let it publish. It could take anywhere from 5 minutes to a few hours depending on how big your web is.


What if I didn't choose to install FrontPage® extensions when I signed up?

If you didn't choose to have them installed, then you will have to email support@prohosting.com to request that they be added. There is no fee for adding FrontPage® extensions at any time. Please make sure you include your domain name whenever you request support from ProHosting.


Are Microsoft® Publisher and Microsoft® FrontPage® the same thing?

No. FrontPage® requires it's extensions installed on our server. Publisher uses a regular FTP connection and is just a more user friendly way of programming in HTML, whereas FrontPage® uses it's own type of File Transfer Protocol and requires extensions to allow it to do so.


How do I add FrontPage® extensions to my sub-domain?

Step 1 - Open FrontPage®

Step 2 - Select FILE | NEW | WEB.

Step 3 - When the box comes up, highlight ONE PAGE WEB

Step 4 - Then, look on the right side of the main box, you'll see a text box with a URL in it, above the text box it says: SPECIFY THE LOCATION OF THE NEW WEB: This is where you would type the ROOT DOMAIN in, with the name of the directory the sub-domain or domain alias is in, eg. http://your_domain.com/example.com example.com being the directory that your sub-domain or domain alias is in. Then push OK.

Step 5 - It will probably ask you if you would like to overwrite the index.html file there already, say No. 

Step 6 - It will then create the sub-web and add the FrontPage extensions. It could take some time.

Step 7 - When you want to edit the files in your sub-web, make sure you open your sub-web and not your root web. Otherwise it will try and use the extensions from the root web and cause problems.
