Server Side Includes (SSI) is a popular server-side scripting language, that is employed to include the content of one file within a second file. It's utilized mostly with online content and it will help to make a static HTML website more dynamic. If you wish to have a daily quote shown on a variety of pages on your website, for instance, you can make a text file and replace the quote in it every single day. All the pages in which this file is included will display the modified quote, so you will not have to update every one of them personally each time. SSI may also be used to include the output of simple functions instead of a static file - for example, the visitor's IP address, a hit counter or even the present time and date. In this manner, you may make your internet site appear more professional and much more attractive to the visitors. Pages that implement SSI get a .shtml extension.
Server Side Includes in Hosting
As our custom made cloud hosting system has Server Side Includes on a global level, you are able to implement this feature with all of the hosting packages that we have and incorporate dynamic content to your sites with a few mouse clicks. SSI is enabled for each particular domain name or subdomain by inserting an .htaccess file in the site folder with only a few lines of code. Of course, there is no need to become a coder for that since the necessary code may be copied from the Help post we have regarding Server Side Includes. If you wish to employ this feature for your website, it's important to rename your website files from .html to .shtml and you will have to double-check if all links on your site point to the current names.
Server Side Includes in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you get a semi-dedicated server package through us, it is possible to enable Server Side Includes with a few clicks and for virtually any domain or subdomain that you pick. We have an in depth Help article about the subject that you could see in your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel. All it takes to enable Server Side Includes will be to copy a couple of lines from the article within an .htaccess file that you should create in the main folder of the domain name/subdomain and you will be good to go. You need to just be sure that all of the files making use of SSI have the right extension i.e. .shtml, not just .html, and that the links on your site are kept up to date and lead to the already updated files.
