Server Side Includes (SSI) is a basic server-side language, which allows you to include text from a given source inside a web page. In the most typical situation, the text from one file is incorporated in a second one, giving a site the sense it is dynamic. For instance, in case your website is made of ten web pages, five of them can easily have the content of some file, such as horoscope.txt. If you change this text file, the modified content is going to appear on all five pages, which will permit you to bring up to date your website faster and easier than if you had to update a component of all 5 web pages. Server Side Includes is at times utilized to contain the output of basic commands, scripts or functions as well - a hit counter that's displayed on the website, the present date and time or the customer's IP address. Any web page that works by using SSI must have a unique extension - .shtml.
Server Side Includes in Cloud Web Hosting
As our custom cloud hosting platform supports Server Side Includes on a global level, it will be possible to implement this feature with any of the cloud web hosting plans we offer you and add dynamic content to your sites with just a few clicks. SSI is enabled for each specific domain or subdomain by putting an .htaccess file in the site folder with a couple of lines of code. Naturally, there is no need to turn into a developer for that since the required code may be copied from the Help article that we have related to Server Side Includes. If you'd like to utilize this function for your site, you have to rename your site files from .html to .shtml and you have to double-check if all of the links on your site lead to the modified names.
