Publishing Your FrontPage 2003 Website Using FTP
If you built your website using Microsoft FrontPage® 2003, we recommend publishing your website using File Transfer Protocol (FTP) instead of FrontPage Server Extensions. Microsoft discontinued FrontPage Extension support in 2004 and no longer provides security updates or patches.
Note: Your website will still work without FrontPage Server Extensions, and you can continue to use and manage your site using FrontPage. However, some features of your website will not work, such as contact forms.
