Server Side Includes (SSI) is a well-known server-side scripting language, employed to add the content of one file inside of a second file. It is utilized mainly with online content and it will make a static HTML website far more dynamic. If you need to have a daily quote shown on a number of webpages within your site, as an example, you can make a text file and replace the quote within it every single day. All of the web pages where this file is included will show the modified quote, so you'll not have to modify all of them personally every time. SSI can also be used to incorporate the output of simple functions as opposed to a static file - for example, the visitor's IP address, a hit counter or even the current date and time. In this manner, you can make your site appear more professional and more attractive to the visitors. Web pages that employ SSI use a .shtml extension.

Since our custom made cloud hosting platform supports Server Side Includes on a global level, you are able to implement this function with any of the cloud website hosting plans we feature and add dynamic content to your websites with just a few mouse clicks. SSI is activated for each individual domain name or subdomain by putting an .htaccess file in the website folder with just a few lines of code. Of course, you don't need to be a coder for that as the necessary code may be copied from the Help article that we have about Server Side Includes. If you want to employ this function for your site, you'll want to rename your site files from .html to .shtml and you've got to double-check if all of the links on your site lead to the current names.
