Server Side Includes (SSI) is a common server-side scripting language, employed to include the content of one file within a second file. It is used mainly with online content and it will help make a static HTML site far more dynamic. If you need to have a daily quote shown on a number of web pages of your website, for example, you can create a text file and switch the quote in it daily. All web pages where this file is integrated will display the updated quote, so you will not have to modify them manually every single time. SSI may also be used to incorporate the output of simple functions rather than a static file - for example, the visitor's IP address, a hit counter or perhaps the present date and time. By doing this, you can make your website seem more professional and more attractive to the visitors. Pages that implement SSI use a .shtml extension.
