We provide quality hosting services to tens of thousands of ladies and gentlemen across the globe. Gentlemanship cannot truly exist in societies with no rights for women. The recent processes in Afghanistan clearly show that, unless assisted, gentlemanship will soon cease to exist there. So, in an attempt to raise awareness about the increasingly difficult situation concerning Afghan women, we decided that our service will be "ladies only" for this territory.

SSI (Server Side Includes)

Server Side Includes (SSI) is a simple to use server-side scripting language, whose primary use is including the contents of one file into another one dynamically or executing of CGI scripts.

A couple of important guidelines you need to follow:

1) SSI commands always begin with <!--# and end with --> just like:
<!--#directive parameter="value"-->There have to be quotes or space in front of -->

2) The web page that adds the SSI instruction to include another page or program MUST end with .shtml or .sht rather than .html or .htm.

Some examples of SSI:

1) If you want to insert a file into another one, you can use the command include virtual. The URL to the page you want to insert must be relative to the current web page rather than a full URL. For example:

<!--#include virtual="file.txt"-->This command includes the contents of file.txt in your file. file.txt and the SSI file must reside in the same folder - notice how this SSI instruction uses a *relative* URL instead of a FULL URL? This is very important to keep in mind when using SSI. And if your file.txt is in a subfolder named my_ssi, you have to add it following way:
<!--#include virtual="my_ssi/file.txt"-->

2) If you want to execute a CGI script (in this case it is a Perl script) and include its output to your webpage, use the following code:
<!--#exec cgi="name_of_your_cgi_script.pl"-->

3) Printing the size of a file named file.html residing in your subdirectory directory is very easy:
<!--#fsize file="directory/file.html"-->

4) <!--#flastmod file="directory/file.html"-->prints the last modification date of the specified file.

5) Useful command for debugging:
<!--#printenv -->It prints out a listing of all existing variables and their values.

6) Variables:

You can easily define and use variables in your SSI scripts. For example, the following command defines the variable "PI" and assigns a value of "3,14159265" to it:
<!--#set var="PI" value="3,14159265"-->Use the following command in case you want to print out the value of PI:

<!--#echo var="PI"-->

In addition to the variables in the standard CGI environment, these are available for the echo command, for if and elif, and to any program invoked by the document.

DATE_GMT - The current date in Greenwich Mean Time
DATE_LOCAL - The current date in the local time zone
DOCUMENT_NAME - The filename (excluding directories) of the document requested by the user
DOCUMENT_URI - The (%-decoded) URL path of the document requested by the user
LAST_MODIFIED - The last modification date of the document requested by the user
QUERY_STRING - The information which follows the ? in the URL which referenced this script. This is the query information.

For example:
<!--#echo var="LAST_MODIFIED"-->prints the last modification date of the current file.

7) Flow Control Elements

The basic flow control elements are:

<!--#if expr="test_condition"-->
<!--#elif expr="test_condition"-->
<!--#else -->
<!--#endif -->

The endif element ends the if element and is required.
