Server Side Includes (SSI) is a well-known server-side scripting language, which can be used to incorporate the content of one file inside of a second file. It is utilized mostly with online content and it can help make a static HTML site far more dynamic. If you wish to have a daily quote displayed on many webpages on your website, for example, you can make a text file and replace the quote inside it every single day. All pages where this file is included are going to display the modified quote, so you'll not need to change all of them manually every single time. SSI can also be used to include the output of simple functions rather than a static file - for instance, the visitor's IP address, a hit counter or maybe the present time and date. By doing this, you may make your website seem far more professional and much more appealing to the website visitors. Pages that use SSI get a .shtml extension.
