Server Side Includes (SSI) is a common server-side scripting language, employed to incorporate the content of one file inside a second file. It's employed typically with online content and it will help to make a static HTML site much more dynamic. If you'd like to have a daily quote displayed on a few web pages of your website, for instance, you can make a text file and replace the quote within it every day. All the web pages in which this file is incorporated are going to show the updated quote, so you will not need to edit every one of them manually every single time. SSI can also be used to contain the output of simple functions instead of a static file - for example, the viewer's IP address, a hit counter or perhaps the present time and date. In this manner, you can make your website seem far more professional and more attractive to the visitors. Web pages that use SSI have a .shtml extension.
Server Side Includes in Website Hosting
It will be possible to use Server Side Includes with all website hosting packages we provide and enable it separately for each and every domain or subdomain inside your hosting account. This can be accomplished when using .htaccess file, which should be placed into the folder in which you wish to use SSI and you have to type in a few lines of code in that file. You'll find the code in our Knowledgebase section, so you can simply just copy and paste it, as you do not need any coding skills to benefit from all of the features that our services feature. If you have by now built your website and you would like to employ Server Side Includes later, you need to ensure that you rename the files from .html to .shtml and correct the links on the site, otherwise SSI is not going to work.
Server Side Includes in Semi-dedicated Servers
It will be easy to enable and utilize Server Side Includes with merely a number of mouse clicks with any one of the semi-dedicated server plans since the feature is supported on the cloud platform where your new account will be configured. All you need to do will be to create an empty file named .htaccess from your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel and then place in a few lines of code in it. You can find the latter within the Help articles available inside of your account, and that means you have no need for any kind of programming capabilities - you're able to simply copy the code in question. All webpages that are going to use Server Side Includes need to have a .shtml extension, so if you add in this function to an active website, you have to make sure that you change all the links on it.
