Server Side Includes in Cloud Website Hosting
All cloud website hosting we provide support Server Side Includes, so you can include dynamic components to any static website that you host on our cloud system. By making an empty .htaccess file and entering some lines of code inside, you're able to enable SSI for a domain or a subdomain. The file in question needs to be inside the specific folder where you will make use of SSI and you'll discover the code in our Frequently Asked Questions section, so you do not need any coding experience. The 24/7 tech support crew shall also be capable to help you with activating Server Side Includes if you aren't sure what to do. You should also make sure to change the extension of all of the files which will make use of SSI from .html to .shtml and ensure that the links on your site point to the right files.
Server Side Includes in Semi-dedicated Servers
It won't take you over a minute to enable Server Side Includes when you have a semi-dedicated server package from us. If you decide to activate this function, you need to set up an .htaccess file in the main folder for the domain or subdomain in which you want SSI to be active. In this file, you must copy some code, that you can find in the FAQ article that we have devoted to SSI. You can find the latter inside the Help section of your Hosting Control Panel, so you don't need any previous knowledge about such things. The only two things you must take care of are renaming all of the web pages that shall use Server Side Includes from .html to .shtml and bringing up-to-date all the links on your website, to make sure they lead to the renamed files.
