Server Side Includes in Website Hosting
It will be possible to use Server Side Includes with all of the website hosting plans that we provide and activate it individually for every domain name or subdomain in your hosting account. This can be achieved by using an .htaccess file, which needs to be placed into the folder in which you wish to use SSI and you need to type in a few lines of code in that file. You can see the code in our Knowledgebase section, so you're able to simply copy it, as you don't need any programming knowledge to take advantage of all of the capabilities that our solutions come with. If you have by now built your site and you wish to use Server Side Includes afterwards, you need to make sure that you rename the files from .html to .shtml and correct the links on the website, otherwise SSI will not work.
Server Side Includes in Semi-dedicated Hosting
It will not take you more than a minute to enable Server Side Includes if you have a semi-dedicated server plan through us. When you decide to enable this function, you will need to make an .htaccess file in the main folder for the domain or subdomain in which you would like SSI to be active. In this file, you need to copy and paste some code, that you can get in the FAQ article that we have devoted to SSI. You'll find the latter within the Help area of your Hosting Control Panel, so you don't need any previous knowledge of such things. The only two things you should take care of are renaming all of webpages that shall use Server Side Includes from .html to .shtml and changing all of the links in your site, to ensure that they lead to the renamed files.
