Server Side Includes (SSI) is a well-known server-side scripting language, employed to include the content of one file inside a second file. It is used principally with online content and it could make a static HTML site far more dynamic. If you need to have a daily quote displayed on many web pages on your site, as an example, you can make a text file and switch the quote inside it every single day. All of the pages in which this file is integrated will display the updated quote, so you'll not have to change every one of them by hand every single time. SSI could also be used to contain the output of basic functions rather than a static file - for instance, the viewer's IP address, a hit counter or even the current date and time. By doing this, you can make your internet site look more professional and much more attractive to the site visitors. Web pages that employ SSI use a .shtml extension.
