Server Side Includes (SSI) is a widely used server-side scripting language, that is employed to incorporate the content of one file inside of a second file. It is employed primarily with online content and it could help to make a static HTML site a lot more dynamic. If you want to have a daily quote displayed on various pages on your website, for instance, you can make a text file and switch the quote within it every single day. All of the web pages where this file is integrated will show the updated quote, so you'll not have to change every one of them personally each time. SSI may 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 maybe the current time and date. In this manner, you can make your internet site seem far more professional and a lot more attractive to the site visitors. Pages that implement SSI get a .shtml extension.
