Server Side Includes in Web Hosting
It is possible to use Server Side Includes with all web hosting plans we provide and enable it separately for every domain name or subdomain in your hosting account. This can be done by using an .htaccess file, which needs to be placed into the folder where you wish to use SSI and you have to type in a couple of lines of code in that file. You can see the code within our Knowledgebase area, so you're able to simply just copy it, as you don't need any programming knowledge to take advantage of all characteristics that our solutions have. If you have already built your site and you would like to use Server Side Includes later on, you must make sure that you rename the files from .html to .shtml and correct the links on the website, otherwise SSI is not going to work.
Server Side Includes in Semi-dedicated Hosting
It shall not take you more than a moment to activate Server Side Includes if you have a semi-dedicated server package through our company. When you choose to activate this function, you will need to create an .htaccess file in the root folder for the domain name or subdomain in which you would like SSI to be active. In that file, you need to copy some code, which you'll see in the FAQ article that we have devoted to SSI. You'll find the latter in the Help section of your Hosting Control Panel, so you don't require any prior knowledge about such matters. The only 2 things you ought to take care of are renaming all webpages that shall employ Server Side Includes from .html to .shtml and bringing up-to-date all of the links in your website, so they lead to the renamed files.
