Server Side Includes (SSI) is a widely used server-side scripting language, which is often used to include the content of one file within a second file. It's utilized mainly with online content and it will help to make a static HTML website a lot more dynamic. If you wish to have a daily quote shown on numerous pages within your website, for example, you can make a text file and replace the quote in it every single day. All web pages in which this file is incorporated are going to show the updated quote, so you will not need to edit them by hand every single time. SSI may also be used to contain the output of basic functions as opposed to a static file - for example, the client's IP address, a hit counter or perhaps the present date and time. This way, you may make your internet site seem more professional and much more attractive to the website visitors. Pages that employ SSI have a .shtml extension.
