Server Side Includes (SSI) is a group of directives that will allow you to include the content of a text file in an HTML file. By doing this, you can add some content to numerous webpages in your website and alter it by just updating one text file. You'll be able to also add the output of distinctive scripts so the current date and time, the IP address of the visitor or the properties of some file appear on your website. This shall allow you to add some dynamic content to static pages, making the site more desirable to your visitors and creating a more professional overall appearance. It will be easier to revise this content when compared with updating each static web page one at a time. If you would like to use Server Side Includes on your website, the web pages that incorporate the content of some file must be with extension .shtml.

You'll find the code inside our Knowledgebase area, so you're able to just copy and paste it, since you don't need any coding knowledge to take advantage of all features that our solutions incorporate. In case you have by now built your site and you want to use Server Side Includes later, you will need to make certain that you rename the files from .html to .shtml and fix the links on the website, or else SSI will not work.
