To expand on this list of valid extensions - login to the DNN site with a Host account, navigate to the Host > Host Settings page, & towards the bottom of the page within the Other Settings expandable section there is an input box with a comma separated list of "Allowable File Extensions". Into this can be Added further file extensions to be uploaded through the CMS (remember to separate multiple new extensions with a comma).

Updating the Host Settings page will update the framework, and the new files can be uploaded to the site.
