Server Side Includes (SSI) is a common server-side scripting language, which can be used to add the content of one file inside of a second file. It's used primarily with online content and it can help make a static HTML website much more dynamic. If you need to have a daily quote displayed on multiple web pages of your site, as an example, you can make a text file and replace the quote in it every single day. All of the web pages where this file is included are going to show the updated quote, so you will not need to edit all of them manually every time. SSI may also be used to incorporate the output of basic functions as opposed to a static file - for example, the client's IP address, a hit counter or maybe the present time and date. In this way, you may make your internet site appear more professional and much more attractive to the website visitors. Web pages that employ SSI get a .shtml extension.
