Server Side Includes (SSI) is a range of directives that will enable you to incorporate the content of a text file inside an HTML file. By doing this, you can add some content to numerous web pages in your site and modify it by simply modifying a single text file. You're able to also add the output of different scripts in order that the present time and date, the IP address of the visitor or the attributes of some file show on your website. This will help you incorporate some dynamic content to static pages, making the site more desirable to your site visitors and creating a professional overall appearance. It will also be quicker to update this content as compared to updating each static web page one by one. If you would like to use Server Side Includes on your website, the web pages that contain the content of some file should be with extension .shtml.
Server Side Includes in Cloud Website Hosting
It will be easy to use Server Side Includes with all cloud website hosting packages that we offer you and activate it separately for each domain or subdomain in your hosting account. This can be accomplished with an .htaccess file, which needs to be placed into the folder in which you wish to use SSI and you have to enter a few lines of code in that file. You'll find the code inside our Knowledgebase section, so you can simply just copy it, as you do not need any coding knowledge to benefit from all of the capabilities that our services come with. In case you have already built your website and you would like to employ Server Side Includes later on, you need to make sure that you rename the files from .html to .shtml and fix the links on the website, otherwise SSI is not going to work.
Server Side Includes in Semi-dedicated Servers

All pages that will utilize Server Side Includes need to have a .shtml extension, so if you add in this feature to an active site, you have to make sure that you bring up to date all the links on it.
