Server Side Includes in Shared Hosting
All the shared hosting we offer support Server Side Includes, so that you can add dynamic elements to any static website which you host on our cloud platform. By creating an empty .htaccess file and entering some lines of code inside, you'll be able to activate SSI for a domain or maybe a subdomain. The file in question needs to be within the particular folder where you will make use of SSI and you can discover the code within our Frequently Asked Questions section, so you don't need any kind of coding knowledge. The 24/7 technical support team shall also be able to help you with activating Server Side Includes if you are not sure how to proceed. You should also remember to modify the extension of all your files that will make use of SSI from .html to .shtml and make sure that the links on your website point to the appropriate files.
Server Side Includes in Semi-dedicated Servers
It will not take you more than a moment to activate Server Side Includes when you have a semi-dedicated server package with our company. If you decide to enable this function, you will need to make an .htaccess file in the main folder for the domain name or subdomain in which you need SSI to be active. In that file, you need to copy and paste some code, which you'll find in the FAQ article we have dedicated to SSI. You can get the latter in the Help section of your Hosting Control Panel, so you do not need any previous knowledge of such matters. The only 2 things you need to deal with are renaming all of the webpages that will utilize Server Side Includes from .html to .shtml and replacing every one of the links in your site, to make sure they lead to the updated files.
