Server Side Includes (SSI) is a common server-side scripting language, used to add the content of one file inside of another file. It's used predominantly with online content and it will help make a static HTML site more dynamic. If you want to have a daily quote shown on numerous webpages of your website, for example, you can make a text file and replace the quote inside it each day. All pages where this file is integrated will display the modified quote, so you'll not have to alter every one of them by hand every single time. SSI may also be used to include the output of basic functions instead of a static file - for instance, the visitor's IP address, a hit counter or even the current date and time. By doing this, you may make your internet site seem more professional and much more attractive to the site visitors. Pages that employ SSI have a .shtml extension.
