Server Side Includes (SSI) is a widely used server-side scripting language, employed to add the content of one file inside a second file. It's utilized principally with online content and it can help to make a static HTML site far more dynamic. If you'd like to have a daily quote shown on numerous pages on your website, as an example, you can make a text file and switch the quote in it each day. All the pages in which this file is incorporated will show the updated quote, so you will not need to modify all of them by hand every time. SSI can also be used to contain the output of basic functions instead of a static file - for instance, the visitor's IP address, a hit counter or even the present time and date. In this manner, you can make your site appear more professional and much more attractive to the site visitors. Pages that employ SSI have a .shtml extension.
