Effective January 1st 2014: If you built your website using Microsoft FrontPage® 2003, we recommend publishing your website using File Transfer Protocol (FTP) instead of FrontPage Server Extensions. Microsoft discontinued FrontPage Extension support in 2004 and no longer provides security updates or patches. NOTE: Your website will still work without FrontPage Server Extensions, and you can continue to use and manage your site using FrontPage. However, some features of your website will not work, such as contact forms.

How you can Upload Your Website Using FTP Instead.

Publishing your FrontPage website using FTP is simple and can be completed within the site builder application. To publish your website follow these four quick steps:

  1. Launch FrontPage
  2. From the “File” menu, select “Publish Site”
  3. Complete the Following Fields, and then click “OK”
    1. Select “FTP”
    2. “Remote Web Site Location” – Enter your domain name or server hostname after the ftp://
    3. FTP Directory – Type “/public_html” to publish to your primary hostings account.
    4. Select “Use Passive FTP”
  4. In the “Publish all changed pages” section, select “Local to Remote” and then click “Publish Website”

    Josh, I built this website with Microsoft FrontPage 2002 with extensions. Had to change sever to A2. That said they could handle this website. After several week to get up and running, they said that they could handle the extensions. You speak of FrontPage 2003 could be used. Appreciate more of your comment. Thanks. This is a Veterans for Eastland Cointy of Texas. Trying to serve our veterans. Webb. Jordan.
