Server Side Includes in Cloud Hosting
All the Linux cloud hosting we offer support Server Side Includes, so you can incorporate dynamic elements to any static website which you host on our cloud platform. By making a clear .htaccess file and entering some lines of code inside it, you're able to activate SSI for a domain or perhaps a subdomain. The file in question should be in the specific folder where you will make use of SSI and you can get the code within our Frequently Asked Questions section, which means you don't need any kind of coding experience. Our 24/7 tech support staff shall also be able to assist you with activating Server Side Includes if you're not absolutely sure how to proceed. You should also remember to change the extension of all files that will implement SSI from .html to .shtml and ensure that the links on your site lead to the appropriate files.
Server Side Includes in Semi-dedicated Hosting
It shall not take you more than a minute to activate Server Side Includes in case you have a semi-dedicated server package through us. When you choose to activate this function, you need to set up an .htaccess file in the root folder for the domain name or subdomain in which you would like SSI to be enabled. In that file, you need to copy some code, which you'll get in the FAQ article that we have devoted to SSI. You'll find the latter inside the Help area of your Hosting Control Panel, so you don't require any prior knowledge of such things. The only 2 things you must take care of are renaming all webpages that will use Server Side Includes from .html to .shtml and replacing every one of the links in your site, so that they point to the renamed files.
