Server Side Includes (SSI) is a popular server-side scripting language, used to include the content of one file inside of another file. It is employed predominantly with online content and it can help to make a static HTML website more dynamic. If you'd like to have a daily quote shown on multiple web pages on your site, for example, you can make a text file and replace the quote within it every day. All of the pages where this file is incorporated will show the updated quote, so you will not need to alter every one of them by hand each time. SSI may also be used to contain the output of basic functions rather than a static file - for example, the client's IP address, a hit counter or maybe the current time and date. In this way, you may make your site seem much more professional and a lot more appealing to the site visitors. Web pages that use SSI use a .shtml extension.
Server Side Includes in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to use Server Side Includes with all of the cloud hosting packages we provide and enable it independently for every single domain or subdomain within your hosting account. This can be achieved with an .htaccess file, which should be placed into the folder where you want to use SSI and you have to type in a few lines of code in that file. You will find the code in our Knowledgebase area, so you're able to just copy it, since you do not need any coding skills to benefit from all features that our solutions feature. In case you have by now built your website and you want to use Server Side Includes later, you have to make sure that you rename the files from .html to .shtml and fix the links on the site, otherwise SSI is not going to work.
Server Side Includes in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to activate and use Server Side Includes with simply a couple of mouse clicks with any of our semi-dedicated server plans since the option is available on the cloud platform where your account will be set up. All you need to do is to make a blank file named .htaccess via your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel and then include a handful of lines of code inside. You will find the latter inside the Help articles that are offered inside of your account, which means you do not require any kind of programming capabilities - you are able to just copy and paste the code in question. All web pages that are going to use Server Side Includes should have a .shtml extension, so in case you incorporate this function to an active site, you must make sure that you change all the links on it.
