Server Side Includes (SSI) is a widely used server-side scripting language, that is employed to add the content of one file within another file. It's employed predominantly with online content and it could help make a static HTML site more dynamic. If you want to have a daily quote shown on several webpages on your website, for instance, you can make a text file and replace the quote inside it every day. All the webpages in which this file is incorporated will show the modified quote, so you will not have to modify all of them personally each 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 the current time and date. By doing this, you may make your site look a lot more professional and more appealing to the site visitors. Web pages that employ SSI get a .shtml extension.
