Server Side Includes (SSI) is a well-known server-side scripting language, that is employed to incorporate the content of one file inside of a second file. It is used principally with online content and it will help make a static HTML site much more dynamic. If you need to have a daily quote displayed on a few webpages on your site, for instance, you can create a text file and switch the quote in it daily. All of the pages in which this file is included are going to show the updated quote, so you will not have to update them by hand each time. SSI can also be used to incorporate the output of basic functions rather than a static file - for instance, the client's IP address, a hit counter or maybe the current date and time. By doing this, you may make your internet site look more professional and a lot more attractive to the visitors. Web pages that use SSI use a .shtml extension.
