As a site administrator, you have the
privilege to publish the site home page. Once you have
created a home page (usually called index.htm,
index.html or index.php) and you want to post it to the
Internet, you can upload it into your root directory.

is: index.htm, index.html or index.php.
6. FRONTPAGE EXTENSIONS
If your site has been enabled to do so, you can use
Microsoft FrontPage to replace or edit your website.
FrontPage extensions are NOT enabled by default. You
must request this using our
A site created with FrontPage should
NOT be uploaded through FTP or some of the Microsoft
FrontPage (WebBot) features will not work.
Please be aware that FrontPage maintains index and
configuration files on the remote site. If you add web pages
to the site with FTP, the changes may not be recorded, and
FrontPage may begin to function abnormally thereafter.
It is recommended that you use only FrontPage to modify a
FrontPage site. Currently we do not offer support for
FrontPage 2000, and versions 2002 and 2003 will not be
supported as of Jan 1st, 2009.
Also, you may see a bunch of odd files and directories in
your account. DO NOT delete them. If you log in to your site
with plain FTP and find some directories (for example, _vti*
) and files (for example, .htaccess ) that you did not
upload, do not delete them. They belong there, and you will
damage the FrontPage extensions if you remove them.
