Server Side Includes (SSI) is a common server-side scripting language, employed to add the content of one file within a second file. It is utilized principally with online content and it can make a static HTML site far more dynamic. If you wish to have a daily quote shown on a few webpages of your site, as an example, you can create a text file and replace the quote in it each day. All of the webpages where this file is included will show the modified quote, so you'll not have to edit all of them by hand every single time. SSI may 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 maybe the present time and date. In this way, you may make your website look far more professional and much more attractive to the website visitors. Web pages that employ SSI get a .shtml extension.
