Microsoft Front Page has since been replaced by Microsoft Expression Web and Share Point Designer, which were first released in December 2006 alongside Microsoft Office 2007, but these two products were also discontinued in favor of a web-based version of Share Point Designer, as those three HTML editors were Desktop applications.evidence of which can be easily spotted in file names and directories prefixed _vti_ in Web sites created using Front Page.Internet Information Services (IIS) for Windows® Server is a flexible, secure and manageable Web server for hosting anything on the Web.
But if you're working in a fast-paced, feature-driven environment where customers are clamoring for forms that write to and read from a database (without programming) and Web sites that can have innumerable nested sub-Webs (each with a separate administrator, authors, and users), then take a look at the Front Page 2000 Server Extensions.
Even though Microsoft is ending official support for Front Page, you can continue to use it to publish your website.
However, going forward you will be unable to publish your site using Front Page extensions, and instead you will want to publish your Front Page site over FTP.
For the purposes of this note, Windows Share Point Services are Front Page Server Extensions by another name.
The Front Page Server Extensions are not supplied with Windows Vista and are not supplied with Expression Web.
