Server Side Includes (SSI) is a well-known server-side scripting language, which can be used to incorporate the content of one file inside another file. It's utilized typically with online content and it will help to make a static HTML website a lot more dynamic. If you wish to have a daily quote shown on a number of web pages of your website, for instance, you can create a text file and switch the quote inside it every day. All the pages in which this file is incorporated are going to display the updated quote, so you'll not need to edit them by hand every time. SSI could also be used to contain the output of simple functions instead of a static file - for instance, the visitor's IP address, a hit counter or maybe the present date and time. This way, you may make your website seem more professional and much more appealing to the website visitors. Web pages that employ SSI have a .shtml extension.
