Server Side Includes (SSI) is a well-known server-side scripting language, employed to incorporate the content of one file inside another file. It's utilized mainly with online content and it can make a static HTML website much more dynamic. If you wish to have a daily quote displayed on a few webpages on your website, for example, you can make a text file and replace the quote inside it every single day. All web pages in which this file is included will display the modified quote, so you'll not have to edit them personally every time. SSI may also be used to incorporate the output of simple functions instead of a static file - for example, the viewer's IP address, a hit counter or perhaps the present time and date. By doing this, you can make your internet site seem more professional and much more appealing to the site visitors. Web pages that use SSI use a .shtml extension.
