Server Side Includes (SSI) is a well-known server-side scripting language, used to incorporate the content of one file inside another file. It's employed mostly with online content and it can help to make a static HTML website far more dynamic. If you'd like to have a daily quote shown on various pages of your website, for instance, you can create a text file and switch the quote in it every day. All the webpages where this file is integrated will show the updated quote, so you will not have to alter them manually every time. SSI may also be used to incorporate the output of simple functions instead of a static file - for instance, the viewer's IP address, a hit counter or perhaps the present date and time. This way, you may make your site appear a lot more professional and a lot more attractive to the visitors. Pages that employ SSI have a .shtml extension.
