Server Side Includes in Cloud Web Hosting
All of the Linux cloud web hosting packages we offer you support Server Side Includes, so that you can bring in dynamic elements to any static site that you host on our cloud platform. By creating a clear .htaccess file and typing in a few lines of code inside it, you can enable SSI for a domain or perhaps a subdomain. The file in question must be in the exact folder where you are going to use SSI and you will see the code in our Frequently Asked Questions section, and that means you don't need any kind of coding knowledge. Our 24/7 tech support team shall also be in a position to help you with enabling Server Side Includes if you aren't sure how to proceed. You should furthermore make sure to change the extension of all your files that are going to use SSI from .html to .shtml and make certain that the links on your website lead to the right files.
Server Side Includes in Semi-dedicated Hosting
It won't take you more than a moment to activate Server Side Includes when you've got a semi-dedicated server package with us. When you choose to enable this feature, you have to set up an .htaccess file in the root folder for the domain or subdomain where you need SSI to be active. In that file, you need to copy and paste some code, that you can get in the FAQ article we have dedicated to SSI. You can find the latter inside the Help section of your Hosting Control Panel, so you don't need any prior knowledge about these types of matters. The only 2 things you ought to take care of are renaming all of webpages that shall use Server Side Includes from .html to .shtml and replacing every one of the links in your site, so they point to the renamed files.
