Does PrecisionEffect Really Support Frontpage Extension
Aug 9, 2008
I was always told by their customer service that FE was supported. Always means before I placed an order, before I transferred the host and after the DNS propogation.
But FE didn't work for me! After more than 20 emails exchanged under the same tickent #, PrecisionEffect said 'look into this a bit more' then kept silent for more than 4 hours, not as normal as their outstanding response time in minutes.
My client was getting panic. She was losing the business because the web site coulnd't work properly without FE enabled.
I have now been with PrecisionEffect.com for two years and have just paid for year number three. I have to say I have been very happy with the quality and service I have received. For my site I currently need over 7GB of storage space plus over 60GB of bandwidth a month. For me, the few extra dollars a month that I pay for a top quality host are well worth it. It is critical that the site loads quickly and has hardly any down time. I am currently using their failover-enabled server. From what I can tell my site has only been down a total of about an hour over the past two years. I donít think you can beat that anywhere. I have never had that kind of uptime with any other host.
In the past I have been with web hosts that have put me on servers with 500 or more other hosted domains. PrecisionEffect.com currently has me on a server with only 200 domains (5 of which are mine). I believe not pushing their equipment to the max has been the main reason for the really good uptime.
If I ever do need support, Dave or Steve Garbus (both run PrecisionEffect.com) respond within minutes. Being a smaller size host, they know me and my site and are able to help me quickly. They are also able to help me customize the service I receive on the fly (Adding storage, domains, bandwidth to the plan).
I recommend PrecisionEffect.com to anyone looking for a long term top quality host with fast loading webpages (see their LiteSpeed plans) and excellent support. The couple of dollars extra you will pay for the service will be well worth it and save you in the long run.
I am trying to get a dedicated server from unmeteredservers.com. My website was designed with FrontPage in htm mode. The technical team is asking whether I require FrontPage Extensions, and that if I do, then I cannot use their services because FrontPage extentions has been discontinued. My site has been working very well on many shared servers, I told them. They say I shoulsd find out from my frontpage whether it uses the extensions. I have no idea where I can get that information from in my Frontpage program. How do I get that kind of information?
Meanwhile, I do know that when I used FrontPage to upload my site, the Panels peovided an option to intall the extensions. But now that I upload with CuteFTP, no server has since requested for the extensions to be installed. Will my site work on the server if I simply upload via an FTP without any FrontPage extensions installed?
Since a recent server and control panel move (we switched from Enism X to CPanel 11 on CentOS 5), our accounts no longer work with any version of FrontPage prior to 2003. You can't even bring up the authentication window in FrontPage 2000, it spits out an error saying that there's a problem with WWW-Authenticate (or similar, don't have exact error as I dont own a copy of FP2000, but that's what a few clients are reporting).
Has anyone had any similar experiences and would you have any advice to give so that I may somehow fix this problem? I know FP has been EOL for some time now but it doesn't change that many of my customers still use it and expect their services to keep working on the new platform.
i have a customer who had a site in somwhere else.he used to upload his files via frontpage with the frontpage extensios way.in my server i have install frontpage extensios.the problem is that when he tries topublish the files whichs edits the changes in NOT going to the files which are in public_html folder but it is automated creating a new folder with the name domain.gr. AND THERE PUTS ALL THE FILES WHICH are changing.
what i must change so the changes to be in files in public_html and also stop creating folder with the name domain.gr.i hope you understand the frontpage extensios.i havent experienced before

I am preparing a server to do some hosting, but need the newest frontpage extensions. I noticed in Centos 4.5 running Cpanel it has this. Does anyone have access to the files needed to accomplish this as well as any config info?
I have a client which I am going to move from another hosting company to mine. The problem is that the user is on a server that does not have FTP access and only Frontpage access. The problem is that i currently do not have Frontpage on my PC. Any tips for moving the site and its files without it? Is there any way to simulate a FP connection?
I like the features and usability of BlueHost.com, however they don't seem to support ASP.
Can anyone recommend a site that has the features (and reliability) of BlueHost.com that also has ASP?
I use FrontPage for creation, updates and FTP, and I also use EarlyImpact's ProductCart shopping cart system (written in ASP). Our company's website is approximately 75-80Mb in size and I don't have the stats on what our bandwidth usage is.
To properly use & work with ProductCart, I need to have server access where I can upload and run installs and various other applications as if it were on my own local machine. From what I saw from using BlueHost's demo with cPanel, it seems to fit the bill of what our company needs except for the ASP thing.
We are having some trouble getting Frontpage to work for a client of us, on a Windows Server 2003 VPS with Plesk. As we have tried reinstalling FP extensions, and can't quite determine if this is a server related or Frontpage (software) related issue, I thought I'd try asking here..
The user is not able to log in using Frontpage. When trying to access www.site.com he gets an error message that "The folder www.site.com is not available. It may be at an unavailable location, password protected or the filename could contain / or ".
The error message occurs just after typing the URL into the URL box... he doesn't even get prompted for username or password.
Does anyone know how to install the Frontpage Server Extensions on an Apache server which is running on a Windows box? I've searched around including on Microsoft's site, but I was only able to find info on how to configure for Apache running on unix/linux.
I know nothing about IIS as I ormally use Linux / Apache so I'm not sure this is possible.
I have built a site in PHP that the client now wants to move over to a IIS-hosted server. Although it's all in PHP because it was a re-build of an old static site I used ModRewrite to make all the page .html.
I know IIS doesn't have a URL rewrite feature as such. What I was wondering is, is it possible to configure IIS so that a PHP page can have a .html extension?
