Server Side Includes (SSI) is a well-known server-side scripting language, which is often used to incorporate the content of one file within another file. It's utilized predominantly with online content and it can help to make a static HTML site more dynamic. If you need to have a daily quote shown on multiple webpages within your site, as an example, you can make a text file and switch the quote inside it every single day. All the pages where this file is included will display the updated quote, so you will not need to modify every one of them manually each time. SSI may also be used to contain the output of simple functions as opposed to a static file - for example, the client's IP address, a hit counter or perhaps the current date and time. In this manner, you may make your website appear a lot more professional and much more attractive to the visitors. Pages that employ SSI get a .shtml extension.
