Server Side Includes (SSI) is a common server-side scripting language, employed to incorporate the content of one file inside of another file. It is used primarily with online content and it will make a static HTML website more dynamic. If you want to have a daily quote shown on a variety of web pages on your website, for example, you can create a text file and replace the quote inside it every day. All of the webpages in which this file is included are going to show the modified quote, so you will not have to modify every one of them personally every time. SSI may also be used to include the output of basic functions instead of a static file - for instance, the visitor's IP address, a hit counter or the present time and date. This way, you may make your internet site look more professional and more appealing to the website visitors. Pages that use SSI get a .shtml extension.
