Server Side Includes (SSI) is a widely used server-side scripting language, employed to add the content of one file inside of another file. It is used predominantly with online content and it will make a static HTML website a lot more dynamic. If you wish to have a daily quote displayed on many pages within your site, for instance, you can make a text file and replace the quote inside it every single day. All the web pages where this file is integrated are going to display the modified quote, so you'll not have to alter all of them personally every single time. SSI could also be used to include the output of simple functions instead of a static file - for example, the client's IP address, a hit counter or the present date and time. By doing this, you may make your site appear a lot more professional and much more appealing to the visitors. Web pages that employ SSI have a .shtml extension.
