Server Side Includes (SSI) is a common server-side scripting language, that is employed to include the content of one file within a second file. It's used mainly with online content and it could make a static HTML website more dynamic. If you wish to have a daily quote shown on numerous webpages of your website, for example, you can create a text file and replace the quote in it each day. All the webpages where this file is integrated are going to display the modified quote, so you will not have to change them by hand every time. SSI could also be used to contain the output of simple functions as opposed to a static file - for instance, the client's IP address, a hit counter or maybe the current time and date. In this way, you may make your internet site appear more professional and a lot more appealing to the visitors. Web pages that employ SSI get a .shtml extension.
