Server Side Includes (SSI) is a common server-side scripting language, that is employed to add the content of one file inside of another file. It is used primarily with online content and it can help make a static HTML site far more dynamic. If you'd like to have a daily quote shown on a number of web pages on your website, for instance, you can create a text file and replace the quote inside it every single day. All of the webpages where this file is integrated will show the updated quote, so you will not need to alter them manually every single time. SSI may also be used to include the output of basic functions rather than a static file - for instance, the viewer's IP address, a hit counter or even the present time and date. In this way, you can make your site look much more professional and a lot more attractive to the website visitors. Pages that implement SSI use a .shtml extension.
