Server Side Includes (SSI) is a well-known server-side scripting language, that is employed to include the content of one file inside of a second file. It is employed primarily with online content and it will help to make a static HTML site a lot more dynamic. If you need to have a daily quote displayed on many webpages within your site, for example, you can create a text file and replace the quote inside it every single day. All the web pages in which this file is included are going to display the updated quote, so you'll not have to alter them manually every single time. SSI can also be used to contain the output of simple functions instead of a static file - for instance, the visitor's IP address, a hit counter or maybe the current date and time. By doing this, you may make your site seem a lot more professional and much more appealing to the website visitors. Web pages that use SSI use a .shtml extension.
