Server Side Includes (SSI) is a common server-side scripting language, that is employed to add the content of one file inside another file. It is used typically with online content and it could make a static HTML site much more dynamic. If you want to have a daily quote displayed on numerous pages of your website, as an example, you can make a text file and replace the quote inside it every day. All of the webpages in which this file is included are going to show the modified quote, so you will not have to edit every one of them manually every time. SSI could also be used to incorporate the output of simple functions rather than a static file - for instance, the viewer's IP address, a hit counter or maybe the present date and time. In this way, you may make your internet site look more professional and more appealing to the site visitors. Web pages that use SSI get a .shtml extension.
Server Side Includes in Website Hosting
Since our custom cloud hosting platform supports Server Side Includes on a global level, you will be able to implement this feature with all of the website hosting plans we have and bring dynamic content to your sites with just a few mouse clicks. SSI can be activated for each specific domain or subdomain by putting an .htaccess file in the site folder with only a few lines of code. Of course, you don't need to turn into a coder for that as the necessary code may be copied from the Help post we have regarding Server Side Includes. If you would like to use this function for your site, you will need to rename your website files from .html to .shtml and you've got to double-check if all links on your website point to the up to date names.
Server Side Includes in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you get a semi-dedicated server package through our company, it is possible to activate Server Side Includes with a few clicks and for virtually any domain or subdomain that you choose. We have a detailed Help article on the subject you could see in your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel. All you need to activate Server Side Includes will be to copy a handful of lines out of the article within an .htaccess file that you need to create in the main folder of the domain name/subdomain and you will be set. You need to just be certain that all of the files utilizing SSI have the appropriate extension i.e. .shtml, not just .html, and also that the links on your website are updated and lead to the by now renamed files.
