Server Side Includes (SSI) is a common server-side scripting language, used to include the content of one file within another file. It's employed predominantly with online content and it will make a static HTML website a lot more dynamic. If you want to have a daily quote shown on a variety of webpages on your website, for instance, you can make a text file and replace the quote inside it every single day. All the webpages in which this file is included will show the modified quote, so you'll not have to edit all of them personally every time. SSI could also be used to contain the output of basic functions rather than 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 site look a lot more professional and more attractive to the website visitors. Pages that use SSI use a .shtml extension.
