FrontPage stopped working

Issue: 

My FrontPage Extensions stopped working.

What happened:

FrontPage had been discontinued by Microsoft in 2006. Keeping FrontPage on the server is a great security risk. There are no patches and security updates. WestNIC is currently removing FrontPage on all shared, semi-dedicated and dedicated servers. This task will be completed by the end of 2010. 

Solution (highly recommended):

We do recommend secure FTP (FTP over SSL) or SFTP: 

You can find many FTP clients, some of them free (such is Filezilla), some paid. We're strongly recommend commercial products such is CuteFTP Pro. It has built-in HTML editor and FTP client which supports all secure protocols. You may also use WS_FTP Pro.

Last resort:

You may continue using FrontPage at your own risk through WEBDAV:

1. On the Remote Web Site tab, under Remote Web server type, click WebDAV.
2. Set your Front page Host to http://yourdomain.com:2077/public_html or https://yourdomain.com:2078/public_html (ignore SSL warning)
3. Enter site username and password.
