Server Side Includes (SSI) is a popular server-side scripting language, that is employed to incorporate the content of one file inside a second file. It's employed mostly with online content and it can help make a static HTML site far more dynamic. If you want to have a daily quote shown on many webpages on your website, for example, you can create a text file and replace the quote in it daily. All webpages where this file is included will show the updated quote, so you'll not need to update them by hand every single time. SSI could also be used to include the output of simple functions as opposed to a static file - for instance, the client's IP address, a hit counter or even the present date and time. In this manner, you may make your internet site seem far more professional and more attractive to the website visitors. Pages that implement SSI use a .shtml extension.
