Ending of Front Page extensions

Following an email today from PlusNet I think I may have to move my website http://www.learnanytime.co.uk.
I therefore followed the link to instructions on how to do this. It said:
Moving your website to the Homepages servers using FrontPage 2003
1. Open your website in FrontPage. Here we're using FrontPage 2003, older versions may have their settings in different places however the principle remains the same.
2. Click View menu followed by Remote Web Site.
There is no 'Remote Web Site' in my view menu.
So I went onto the Microsoft site for assistance. They advise:
Set a remote Web site location
Applies to: Microsoft Office FrontPage 2003
Important If Remote Web Site is unavailable on the View menu, you have not named and saved the Web site. In order to set a remote Web site location, you must first name and save the Web site.
How can I not have named and saved a website that has been running for 5 years?
Help!!!!!

Your website is on the main homepages server not the frontpage server - you are not affected.

Thank you
Found your first reply.
Apologize for not using to correct protocol.
Couldn't work out which heading I should have posted my question.

Hi Terry,
The email was sent because you have an active frontpage component on there, glad to hear that your website isn't affected. Welcome to the forums, and don't worry about the cross posting thing - all is good. Please let us know if there's anything further we can help with.

Re: Ending of Front Page extensions

Anyone who needs a breathing space, to maintain a site using FP server side tools, can upload their old "http://fp.mysite.plus.com" to "http://mysite.x10hosting.com" while they get to grips with reorganising themselves for the upcoming Plusnet server options. It's free, easy to register and easy to upload the expanded file structure that Plusnet can provide you with. My 450MB site worked a treat first time.

Worth mentioning that James created an account with x10 hosting and if my memory serves me correctly it was suspended because he hadn't accessed their forums in x period of time.
