Server Side Includes in Cloud Hosting
It will be easy to use Server Side Includes with all cloud hosting packages we offer you and enable it separately for each domain name or subdomain inside your hosting account. This can be achieved with an .htaccess file, which should be put into the folder where you want to use SSI and you have to type in a couple of lines of code in that file. You can get the code inside our Knowledgebase section, so you're able to just copy and paste it, as you do not need any coding expertise to take advantage of all of the functions that our solutions include. In case you have currently built your site and you want to use Server Side Includes afterwards, you have to ensure that you rename the files from .html to .shtml and correct the links on the website, or else SSI won't work.
Server Side Includes in Semi-dedicated Servers
It won't take you more than a moment to activate Server Side Includes if you have a semi-dedicated server plan through our company. If you decide to enable this feature, you have to make an .htaccess file in the main folder for the domain or subdomain in which you want SSI to be enabled. In that file, you have to copy and paste some code, that you can find in the FAQ article we have dedicated to SSI. You'll find the latter within the Help section of your Hosting Control Panel, so you do not need any previous experience with such matters. The only 2 things you should take care of are renaming all of the webpages that will use Server Side Includes from .html to .shtml and replacing all of the links in your site, so they point to the updated files.
