Server Side Includes (SSI) is a common server-side scripting language, which is used to add the content of one file within another file. It's utilized primarily with online content and it can help to make a static HTML website far more dynamic. If you'd like to have a daily quote shown on a variety of web pages on your site, as an example, you can create a text file and replace the quote in it every day. All webpages where this file is incorporated will show the modified quote, so you will not have to change them manually each time. SSI could also be used to contain the output of basic functions as opposed to a static file - for instance, the visitor's IP address, a hit counter or maybe the present date and time. In this manner, you may make your website seem a lot more professional and much more attractive to the site visitors. Web pages that implement SSI have a .shtml extension.

Server Side Includes in Shared Hosting

It will be possible to use Server Side Includes with all of the shared hosting plans that we offer you and activate it separately for each and every domain or subdomain within your hosting account. This can be achieved by utilizing an .htaccess file, which should be placed into the folder where you want to use SSI and you need to put a couple of lines of code in that file. You'll find the code inside our Knowledgebase section, so you can simply just copy and paste it, as you don't need any coding capabilities to benefit from all of the features that our solutions feature. In case you have currently built your website and you would like to use Server Side Includes later, you need to ensure that you rename the files from .html to .shtml and fix the links on the site, otherwise SSI will not work.

You can find the latter inside the Help articles accessible within your account, which means you don't require any programming expertise - you are able to simply just copy the code in question. All webpages that are going to implement Server Side Includes need to have a .shtml extension, so if you add this function to an active site, you must make sure that you change all of the links on it.
