Q&A

Q1:If a Web hosting provider doesn't offer an extended server with either FrontPage Server Extensions or SharePoint Services, should I use that provider?
A1: The answer depends on whether your site is reliant on server-specific features and you can live without some FrontPage maintenance features.

To see whether a site is reliant on the extensions, publish it to the hosting provider and try all of its features. Some of them, such as forms, can be rewritten to use an alternative. Others, such as threaded discussions, require the extensions and can't be replaced easily.

When you are publishing a site, FrontPage 2003 works faster and more reliably with a host equipped with an extended server. My advice is to choose a host that offers them—you get this advantage along with a bunch of Web components and wizards that aren't available otherwise.

Q2:My Web hosting service puts a bunch of files in the folder where I publish my site. Is there a way to make FrontPage stop asking me if I want to delete them?
A2: One way to solve the problem is to make copies of those files in your site. Use the Import Web Wizard or FTP software to create a second copy of your Web on your system, including the files your hosting service put there for you.

After making the copy, open your original site and import your hosting service's files into it. When that's done, select the files in the Folder list or Folders view, right-click, and then choose Don't Publish from the shortcut menu that appears. From that point on, FrontPage will stop asking whether you want to delete the files when you publish the site.
