Server Side Includes (SSI) is a well-known server-side scripting language, that is employed to add the content of one file inside another file. It is used typically with online content and it can help to make a static HTML website a lot more dynamic. If you want to have a daily quote displayed on various webpages on your site, as an example, you can create a text file and replace the quote inside it each day. All the web pages where this file is incorporated are going to show the modified quote, so you will not need to edit them by hand every time. SSI could also be used to include the output of basic functions rather than a static file - for instance, the client's IP address, a hit counter or even the current date and time. In this manner, you may make your website appear a lot more professional and a lot more attractive to the visitors. Pages that implement SSI have a .shtml extension.
