Server Side Includes (SSI) is a well-known server-side scripting language, employed to add the content of one file inside of another file. It is employed mainly with online content and it can help to make a static HTML website much more dynamic. If you wish to have a daily quote displayed on a variety of web pages within your site, as an example, you can make a text file and switch the quote in it every day. All the pages where this file is integrated will display the modified quote, so you will not need to edit every one of them by hand every single time. SSI may also be used to incorporate the output of simple functions rather than a static file - for example, the viewer's IP address, a hit counter or the present time and date. This way, you can make your internet site appear more professional and a lot more attractive to the site visitors. Pages that employ SSI use a .shtml extension.
