Server Side Includes (SSI) is a well-known server-side scripting language, that is employed to include the content of one file within a second file. It's employed mostly with online content and it will help to make a static HTML website more dynamic. If you'd like to have a daily quote shown on multiple pages within your website, for instance, you can create a text file and replace the quote inside it every single day. All the pages where this file is integrated are going to show the modified quote, so you will not have to change them personally every single time. SSI could also be used to incorporate the output of basic functions instead of a static file - for instance, the visitor's IP address, a hit counter or maybe the current date and time. In this manner, you can make your internet site seem far more professional and much more attractive to the visitors. Web pages that implement SSI get a .shtml extension.
