Server Side Includes (SSI) is a popular server-side scripting language, that is employed to incorporate the content of one file within a second file. It is utilized mostly with online content and it could make a static HTML website far more dynamic. If you wish to have a daily quote shown on numerous web pages on your site, as an example, you can create a text file and replace the quote within it every single day. All of the webpages where this file is incorporated are going to show the modified quote, so you'll not need to change every one of them by hand every single time. SSI may 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 current time and date. In this manner, you may make your site appear far more professional and more appealing to the site visitors. Pages that implement SSI get a .shtml extension.
