Server Side Includes (SSI) is a common server-side scripting language, which is used to include the content of one file within a second file. It's employed typically with online content and it could help make a static HTML site more dynamic. If you need to have a daily quote shown on a number of webpages of your website, for example, you can create a text file and switch the quote inside it daily. All web pages where this file is included will display the modified quote, so you'll not have to alter every one of them personally every time. SSI could also be used to contain the output of simple functions instead of a static file - for example, the visitor's IP address, a hit counter or perhaps the current time and date. By doing this, you may make your site look a lot more professional and more attractive to the visitors. Web pages that use SSI have a .shtml extension.
