Server Side Includes (SSI) is a widely used server-side scripting language, used to incorporate the content of one file within a second file. It is utilized predominantly with online content and it could make a static HTML site much more dynamic. If you need to have a daily quote shown on a few webpages of your site, for example, you can create a text file and replace the quote in it each day. All pages in which this file is integrated will display the modified quote, so you will not need to alter all of them personally each time. SSI can also be used to incorporate the output of simple functions as opposed to a static file - for instance, the visitor's IP address, a hit counter or perhaps the current date and time. This way, you may make your internet site appear much more professional and a lot more attractive to the visitors. Web pages that use SSI get a .shtml extension.
