Server Side Includes (SSI) is a well-known server-side scripting language, used to add the content of one file inside of a second file. It's used typically with online content and it can make a static HTML site more dynamic. If you'd like to have a daily quote shown on several pages within your site, for instance, you can create a text file and replace the quote in it daily. All pages where this file is integrated will show the modified quote, so you will not need to alter all of them personally every time. SSI can also be used to contain the output of basic functions rather than a static file - for example, the client's IP address, a hit counter or maybe the present time and date. This way, you may make your website appear a lot more professional and more appealing to the website visitors. Pages that employ SSI get a .shtml extension.
