Server Side Includes (SSI) is a widely used server-side scripting language, employed to add the content of one file within a second file. It is utilized typically with online content and it could help to make a static HTML website more dynamic. If you'd like to have a daily quote displayed on multiple pages on your site, for instance, you can create a text file and replace the quote within it every day. All of the webpages in which this file is incorporated are going to display the modified quote, so you'll not have to edit all of them by hand every time. SSI can also be used to incorporate the output of basic functions as opposed to a static file - for example, the client's IP address, a hit counter or even the current date and time. In this way, you can make your internet site seem far more professional and much more appealing to the site visitors. Pages that implement SSI have a .shtml extension.
