SSI (Server Side Includes) Support

Do iPowerWeb servers support SSI? Maybe you are first asking yourself, what is an SSI? By reading the title of this page you are probably aware that SSI stands for Server Side Includes, although this does not help us at all when we are trying to figure out the definition of SSI. To out it simple terms SSI is a type of HTML comment that directs the Web server to dynamically generate data for the web page upon request. Every once in a while we get calls (as well as emails) from both existing and potential iPowerWeb customers wanting more information on what SSI is and whether or not we support it.
Hopefully you now have some basic understanding of what SSI is, although you now may be wondering if iPowerWeb supports SSI. Well as is the case with many other programs and features, iPowerWeb hosting does support SSI. Please make sure that if you use SSI's that your permissions are set correctly. For best results, set all files involved in SSI to 755 permissions. Also, be sure that the extension is either PHP or SHTML.
