Server Side Includes (SSI) is a popular server-side scripting language, employed to include the content of one file inside of a second file. It's utilized typically with online content and it could make a static HTML site far more dynamic. If you need to have a daily quote shown on a number of webpages on your site, for example, you can make a text file and replace the quote in it daily. All web pages where this file is integrated are going to show the updated quote, so you'll not have to alter every one of them personally every time. SSI may also be used to incorporate the output of simple functions as opposed to a static file - for instance, the visitor's IP address, a hit counter or even the current date and time. In this manner, you can make your website look more professional and more attractive to the visitors. Web pages that implement SSI use a .shtml extension.
