Server Side Includes (SSI) is a common server-side scripting language, that is employed to add the content of one file within another file. It's employed primarily with online content and it could help make a static HTML website much more dynamic. If you'd like to have a daily quote displayed on a variety of pages of your website, as an example, you can create a text file and switch the quote inside it each day. All of the pages in which this file is incorporated are going to show the modified quote, so you will not have to modify all of them manually each time. SSI could also be used to incorporate the output of basic functions rather than a static file - for example, the viewer's IP address, a hit counter or perhaps the current time and date. By doing this, you can make your site appear much more professional and more appealing to the visitors. Pages that implement SSI use a .shtml extension.
