Server Side Includes in Shared Website Hosting
You will be able to use Server Side Includes with all shared website hosting plans we offer you and activate it independently for each and every domain name or subdomain in your hosting account. You can do this by utilizing an .htaccess file, which needs to be placed in the folder in which you wish to use SSI and you have to put a few lines of code in that file. You can find the code inside our Knowledgebase section, so you can just copy and paste it, as you do not need any coding capabilities to benefit from all functions that our services incorporate. In case you have already built your site and you would like to employ Server Side Includes afterwards, you will need to make sure that you rename the files from .html to .shtml and correct the links on the site, or else SSI won't work.
Server Side Includes in Semi-dedicated Servers
It will not take you over a minute to enable Server Side Includes if you have a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. When you choose to enable this function, you need to make an .htaccess file in the root folder for the domain name or subdomain where you need SSI to be enabled. In this file, you must copy and paste some code, which you can get in the FAQ article that we have dedicated to SSI. You'll find the latter in the Help section of your Hosting Control Panel, so you don't need any prior knowledge of these types of things. The only two things you must deal with are renaming all of webpages that will use Server Side Includes from .html to .shtml and replacing all of the links on your website, so that they point to the updated files.
