Server Side Includes (SSI) is a well-known server-side scripting language, which is used to include the content of one file inside a second file. It's employed predominantly with online content and it will help make a static HTML website far more dynamic. If you need to have a daily quote shown on numerous web pages within your website, for example, you can make a text file and replace the quote inside it every day. All the webpages in which this file is integrated will show the updated quote, so you'll not need to update them manually each time. SSI could also be used to include the output of simple functions rather than a static file - for example, the visitor's IP address, a hit counter or the current time and date. In this manner, you may make your internet site seem more professional and more appealing to the website visitors. Web pages that implement SSI get a .shtml extension.
