Server Side Includes (SSI) is a common server-side scripting language, used to add the content of one file within a second file. It's used predominantly with online content and it could help make a static HTML site much more dynamic. If you want to have a daily quote displayed on multiple web pages of your website, for example, you can make a text file and replace the quote within it every day. All the web pages in which this file is incorporated are going to display the updated quote, so you will not need to edit every one of them manually each time. SSI can also be used to include the output of basic functions rather than a static file - for instance, the visitor's IP address, a hit counter or maybe the present time and date. In this way, you can make your internet site seem a lot more professional and a lot more appealing to the website visitors. Web pages that employ SSI have a .shtml extension.
