Server Side Includes (SSI) is a common server-side scripting language, which can be used to include the content of one file inside a second file. It's utilized predominantly with online content and it will help make a static HTML site a lot more dynamic. If you wish to have a daily quote displayed on many webpages on your website, as an example, you can make a text file and replace the quote in it every day. All the web pages in which this file is integrated will display the modified quote, so you will not need to modify all of them manually every single time. SSI could also be used to include the output of simple functions rather than a static file - for instance, the client's IP address, a hit counter or perhaps the present date and time. By doing this, you may make your site look a lot more professional and a lot more attractive to the site visitors. Pages that implement SSI use a .shtml extension.
