Server Side Includes (SSI) is a well-known server-side scripting language, which is used to incorporate the content of one file inside of another file. It is utilized mainly with online content and it could make a static HTML site far more dynamic. If you need to have a daily quote shown on multiple web pages of your website, as an example, you can make a text file and switch the quote in it every day. All of the web pages in which this file is incorporated will show the modified quote, so you'll not have to modify all of them by hand every single time. SSI could also be used to incorporate the output of simple functions instead of a static file - for example, the client's IP address, a hit counter or even the present time and date. By doing this, you can make your site appear more professional and a lot more appealing to the visitors. Web pages that employ SSI get a .shtml extension.
