Server Side Includes (SSI) is a well-known server-side scripting language, employed to add the content of one file within another file. It's used primarily with online content and it will help to make a static HTML website far more dynamic. If you wish to have a daily quote shown on multiple pages on your website, as an example, you can create a text file and replace the quote within it every single day. All of the webpages in which this file is incorporated will show the modified quote, so you'll not have to change them by hand every single time. SSI can also be used to include the output of simple functions rather than a static file - for instance, the viewer's IP address, a hit counter or perhaps the present date and time. This way, you can make your internet site seem a lot more professional and more appealing to the site visitors. Web pages that implement SSI get a .shtml extension.

Server Side Includes in Cloud Web Hosting

It will be possible to use Server Side Includes with all cloud web hosting packages we provide and enable it individually for every domain name or subdomain within your hosting account. This can be achieved by using an .htaccess file, which should be positiioned in the folder in which you want to use SSI and you have to put a few lines of code in that file. You can find the code within our Knowledgebase area, so you're able to simply just copy it, since you don't need any coding capabilities to benefit from all of the capabilities that our services come with. In case you have by now built your website and you would like to use Server Side Includes later, you must make certain that you rename the files from .html to .shtml and correct the links on the website, otherwise SSI will not work.
