Server Side Includes (SSI) is a common server-side scripting language, which can be used to include the content of one file inside of a second file. It is employed mostly with online content and it could help make a static HTML site far more dynamic. If you want to have a daily quote shown on multiple pages of your site, for instance, you can make a text file and replace the quote within it each day. All the pages in which this file is integrated will display the updated quote, so you'll not have to change them manually every single time. SSI could also be used to contain the output of simple functions as opposed to a static file - for instance, the client's IP address, a hit counter or even the current time and date. This way, you may make your site seem far more professional and a lot more attractive to the visitors. Pages that employ SSI use a .shtml extension.
