Server Side Includes (SSI) is a popular server-side scripting language, which is used to incorporate the content of one file inside a second file. It's used predominantly with online content and it will help make a static HTML site far more dynamic. If you wish to have a daily quote displayed on numerous webpages of your website, as an example, you can create a text file and switch the quote inside it each day. All of the pages where this file is incorporated will display the modified quote, so you will not have to alter them manually every time. SSI may also be used to contain the output of basic functions rather than a static file - for example, the viewer's IP address, a hit counter or maybe the current date and time. In this manner, you can make your internet site seem much more professional and much more appealing to the website visitors. Pages that use SSI have a .shtml extension.
