Server Side Includes (SSI) is a widely used server-side scripting language, that is employed to incorporate the content of one file inside another file. It's employed predominantly with online content and it could make a static HTML website far more dynamic. If you need to have a daily quote displayed on numerous web pages of your site, as an example, you can make a text file and switch the quote within it daily. All the pages in which this file is incorporated are going to display the updated quote, so you will not need to alter every one of them manually every time. SSI could also be used to incorporate the output of simple functions as opposed to a static file - for example, the viewer's IP address, a hit counter or even the current date and time. By doing this, you can make your internet site look much more professional and more appealing to the visitors. Pages that use SSI get a .shtml extension.
