Server Side Includes (SSI) really is a set of directives that will allow you to incorporate the content of a text file in an HTML file. This way, you can add some content to a few different pages on your website and change it by simply editing an individual text file. You can additionally add the output of distinctive scripts in order that the present time and date, the IP address of the visitor or the attributes of a file show up on your website. This shall enable you to incorporate some dynamic content to static pages, making the website more desirable to your site visitors and creating a much more professional overall look. It will be much easier to update this content in comparison with editing each static web page one at a time. If you wish to use Server Side Includes on your website, the web pages that include the content of some file need to be with extension .shtml.
Server Side Includes in Website Hosting
You'll be able to use Server Side Includes with all website hosting plans we offer you and enable it individually for every domain name or subdomain in your hosting account. This can be achieved when using an .htaccess file, which needs to be placed in the folder where you wish to use SSI and you need to put a few lines of code in that file. You will find the code inside our Knowledgebase section, so you're able to just copy it, as you do not need any coding skills to take advantage of all functions that our solutions include. If you have currently built your site and you wish to employ Server Side Includes later, you must make sure that you rename the files from .html to .shtml and fix the links on the site, or else SSI won't work.
