Server Side Includes in Shared Hosting
It is possible to use Server Side Includes with all of the shared hosting packages that we offer you and enable it separately for each and every domain or subdomain in your own hosting account. This can be accomplished by using an .htaccess file, which needs to be positiioned in the folder in which you want to use SSI and you need to enter a few lines of code in that file. You can see the code within our Knowledgebase area, so you can simply copy and paste it, since you do not need any coding expertise to take advantage of all features that our solutions come with. If you have currently built your website and you want to use Server Side Includes afterwards, you must ensure that you rename the files from .html to .shtml and fix the links on the site, or else SSI will not work.
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 plan with our company. When you choose to activate this function, you must make an .htaccess file in the root folder for the domain or subdomain where you want SSI to be active. In that file, you must copy some code, that you can find in the FAQ article we have dedicated to SSI. You will find the latter in the Help section of your Hosting Control Panel, so you don't require any prior knowledge about this kind of matters. The only 2 things you must deal with are renaming all pages that shall utilize Server Side Includes from .html to .shtml and replacing each of the links on your website, to make sure they point to the updated files.
