Microsoft Front Page was a popular website editing tool that offered What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG) creation of HTML content.
When it was launched in 2003, it was one of the first generation of web design tools aimed at home users.
Dear Gemstream Hosting Customer, Gemstream has always been proud to offer Microsoft Front Page extensions on our Linux hosting servers, which allow our customers to use Front Page to create and manage their websites.
However, Microsoft is in the process of discontinuing Front Page, and we want to keep you up-to-date on the timeframe of this process, as well as options that current Front Page users have for the future.
Perhaps it is time for those of you still using Front Page to consider moving to a more standards compliant web editor like Expression Web.Front Page Server Extensions are a component of Microsoft’s Front Page Web design software.They enable advanced features without the need for advanced programming knowledge on sites designed in Front Page.The lead analysis limit is the amount of domains that can be uploaded from your own lists or our curated lists for analysis.If you upload a list of 500 domains and we have data for 450 of them, that would use 450 lead analysis credits. If you don't use them in a given month they will be added onto the next month.Despite being replaced by Share Point Designer, Front Page extensions are still needed for some older websites.In the early days of the web, most websites were created in text editors. But in the early 2000s, software companies began to develop What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG) editors, similar to basic desktop publishing applications. The company already had Microsoft Office under its belt, and Front Page was the ideal addition to the Office family. Today I got an email from Gemstream Hosting with the subject line of "Front Page End-of-Life".I’d think this was spam, except it was coming from a big hosting company.Since Front Page is a closed-source program and is no longer supported by it’s maker (Microsoft), continuing usage of this product poses a security risk to our servers, as there will be no way to apply security patches to the product as needed.However, there are a number of options for our Gemstream customers who currently use Front Page.
