FrontPage Description
Microsoft FrontPage is a WYSIWYG ("what you see is what you get") web authoring tool.

Advantages:

People with no Internet experience can use FrontPage to quickly assemble and publish webpages in a familiar, Windows-like environment, without learning HTML, Javascript, CGI, or FTP.

Disadvantages:

FrontPage shields you from basic concepts like file systems, FTP, HTML, and the basic workings of web pages. This can make it difficult to troubleshoot your page if things go wrong, or to update and change your page.

You also CANNOT use CGI scripts with Frontpage Extensions!

All our plans support FrontPage Extensions (all versions). To use them just enable them from the Goodies->Frontpage section of the web panel!
