Server Side Includes (SSI) really is a set of directives that will allow you to include the content of a text file inside an HTML file. By doing this, you are able to add some content to a few different pages in your website and change it just by editing one text file. You'll be able to also add the output of various scripts so that the present date and time, the IP address of the visitor or the attributes of some file appear on your site. This will help you add in some dynamic content to static webpages, making the site more inviting to your website visitors and giving it a professional look and feel. It will be quicker to update this content in comparison with updating each static web page one at a time. If you wish to use Server Side Includes on your site, the web pages that contain the content of any kind of file must be with extension .shtml.

Server Side Includes in Cloud Hosting

As our customized cloud hosting platform offers Server Side Includes on a global level, it will be possible to implement this feature with the cloud hosting plans we feature and incorporate dynamic content to your websites with only a few mouse clicks. SSI is enabled for each specific domain name or subdomain by placing an .htaccess file in the site folder with a few lines of code. Of course, you do not have to become a coder for that because the required code can be copied from the Help post we have related to Server Side Includes. If you'd like to employ this function for your website, you'll want to rename your site files from .html to .shtml and you've got to double-check if all links on your website lead to the up-to-date names.

You should only be certain that all of the files implementing SSI possess the appropriate extension i.e. .shtml, not simply .html, and also that the links on your website are modified and lead to the already updated files.
