Connecting by Using the FrontPage Extensions

FrontPage extensions is a legacy method of publishing web applications to web servers that is no longer recommended or supported by Microsoft. However, if you are using an older version of FrontPage or have a web host that still supports FrontPage extensions, you can use this method to connect to your web server.

To connect to your web server using FrontPage extensions, you will need the following information:

The FrontPage server extensions URL (often in the form

Your FrontPage username and password

Once you have this information, you can use FrontPage to connect to the server and transfer files.

Here are the general steps to connect via FrontPage extensions:

Open FrontPage and open your web application project.

Click “File” and then “Publish Web”.

In the “Publish Web” dialog box, enter the FrontPage server extensions URL in the “Specify the location to publish your web to” field.

Click “Publish” and enter your FrontPage username and password when prompted.

Once you are connected, you can select the files and folders in your web application that you want to publish, and then click “Publish” again to transfer the files to the server.

Once the files have finished publishing, you can test your application by navigating to the appropriate URL in your web browser.

Note that FrontPage extensions is an outdated technology and is no longer recommended for publishing web applications. It is recommended to use more modern deployment methods such as FTP, Git, or Azure DevOps to deploy your web application to a web server.
