Server Side Includes (SSI) is a popular server-side scripting language, which is used to include the content of one file inside another file. It's used mostly with online content and it will make a static HTML site far more dynamic. If you'd like to have a daily quote displayed on several webpages of your website, for instance, you can create a text file and switch the quote in it every single day. All the web pages where this file is integrated are going to show the modified quote, so you will not have to modify every one of them manually every single time. SSI could also be used to include the output of simple functions as opposed to a static file - for example, the client's IP address, a hit counter or perhaps the present time and date. By doing this, you can make your website look a lot more professional and a lot more appealing to the site visitors. Pages that implement SSI get a .shtml extension.
