Server Side Includes (SSI) is a well-known server-side scripting language, that is employed to incorporate the content of one file within another file. It's used typically with online content and it could help to make a static HTML site a lot more dynamic. If you'd like to have a daily quote displayed on a variety of webpages within your website, for example, you can create a text file and switch the quote in it each day. All the pages in which this file is included are going to display the modified quote, so you will not need to update 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 example, the viewer's IP address, a hit counter or perhaps the present date and time. By doing this, you can make your internet site seem more professional and more attractive to the visitors. Web pages that implement SSI use a .shtml extension.
