Server Side Includes (SSI) is a popular server-side scripting language, which is used to include the content of one file inside of a second file. It's utilized predominantly with online content and it will help make a static HTML site much more dynamic. If you'd like to have a daily quote shown on numerous web pages within your website, as an example, you can create a text file and switch the quote inside it every single day. All of the pages where this file is incorporated will show the modified quote, so you'll not need to alter them manually every single time. SSI can also be used to incorporate the output of basic functions as opposed to a static file - for instance, the client's IP address, a hit counter or perhaps the current date and time. This way, you can make your internet site appear more professional and a lot more attractive to the site visitors. Web pages that use SSI have a .shtml extension.
