Server Side Includes (SSI) is a widely used server-side scripting language, which is used to include the content of one file inside of another file. It's employed mainly with online content and it will help make a static HTML website more dynamic. If you want to have a daily quote displayed on a variety of web pages of your website, for instance, you can create a text file and switch the quote inside it each day. All the webpages where this file is included are going to show the updated quote, so you will not need to change all of them personally each time. SSI may also be used to include the output of simple functions instead of a static file - for instance, the client's IP address, a hit counter or the current date and time. By doing this, you may make your website appear much more professional and a lot more attractive to the website visitors. Web pages that use SSI use a .shtml extension.
