Server Side Includes (SSI) is a popular server-side scripting language, that is employed to include the content of one file inside of a second file. It's employed primarily with online content and it could make a static HTML website more dynamic. If you need to have a daily quote shown on multiple web pages of your site, as an example, you can make a text file and switch the quote inside it each day. All the pages where this file is included will show the updated quote, so you'll not need to change them by hand every single time. SSI may also be used to contain the output of basic functions as opposed to a static file - for instance, the viewer's IP address, a hit counter or maybe the current time and date. By doing this, you can make your website look more professional and more attractive to the site visitors. Pages that implement SSI use a .shtml extension.
