Server Side Includes (SSI) is a popular server-side scripting language, which can be used to incorporate the content of one file inside of a second file. It is employed predominantly with online content and it could help make a static HTML site much more dynamic. If you want to have a daily quote displayed on numerous pages of your website, for instance, you can create a text file and replace the quote within it every single day. All the web pages in which this file is integrated will display the updated quote, so you will not need to alter them manually every time. SSI can also be used to contain the output of basic functions as opposed to a static file - for example, the viewer's IP address, a hit counter or perhaps the current date and time. In this manner, you may make your internet site look much more professional and more appealing to the website visitors. Pages that employ SSI have a .shtml extension.
