How to Remove FrontPage Extensions in Cpanel

One of the venerable programs for working with webpages using Microsoft software is the program named FrontPage. The program lets you publish using HTTP or FTP, but in order to publish with HTTP, it required that extensions be installed on the server account. cPanel accounts can be set to have the extension loaded or removed using the cPanel interface. As time has passed, the need for FrontPage extensions has also faded and in some cases may need to be removed from the installation. Removing the HTTP extensions still leaves the option of publishing with FTP. The following article explains how quickly remove these extensions using the cPanel interface.
