Server Side Includes (SSI) is a common server-side scripting language, employed to incorporate the content of one file inside of another file. It's utilized primarily with online content and it could make a static HTML site more dynamic. If you want to have a daily quote shown on a variety of webpages of your website, as an example, you can make a text file and replace the quote within it every day. All the web pages where this file is included will show the updated quote, so you'll not need to update them personally every time. SSI may 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 current time and date. By doing this, you may make your site look much more professional and much more attractive to the visitors. Web pages that implement SSI use a .shtml extension.
