Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124

What does this mean? The site isn't FrontPage... though I suppose it's possible that an earlier version of the site may have been done in FrontPage and the domain was just left on this server. I'm confused also because FrontPage is Microsoft and Apache is not.
Also, fairly soon, there's going to be a domain name change involved in the project, and I may be using .htaccess. Site search on WebmasterWorld brought up the following:
Microsoft .htaccess is not compatible with the one used on Apache.
In general, I don't like to get near anything having to do with FrontPage. It brings back bad memories. Should I have the hosting company move the site to another server, and what should I look out for or ask about, given this server information, which is all I have?
If you don't use them, they will not affect you. It's important to note that if you create pages that USE FP extensions (to process a form for example), this will conflict with mod_rewrite and mod_rewrite will perform unpredictably, if at all.
If you don't use FP, having the extensions installed will be completely transparent to you. There's no reason to change hosts.
