Server Side Includes (SSI) is a popular server-side scripting language, used to add the content of one file inside of another file. It's employed mainly with online content and it could make a static HTML website far more dynamic. If you need to have a daily quote shown on a few webpages on your site, as an example, you can create a text file and switch the quote inside it daily. All of the pages where this file is integrated are going to display the modified quote, so you will not have to alter them manually every single time. SSI can also be used to contain the output of basic functions instead of a static file - for example, the visitor's IP address, a hit counter or the present time and date. In this manner, you may make your internet site look far more professional and much more appealing to the site visitors. Web pages that implement SSI use a .shtml extension.
