Server Side Includes (SSI) is actually a set of directives that will allow you to contain the content of a text file within an HTML file. In this way, you can add some content to a few different webpages on your website and modify it by simply updating an individual text file. You are able to additionally incorporate the output of various scripts in order that the current date and time, the IP address of the website visitor or the properties of some file show up on your website. This will let you add in some dynamic content to static web pages, making the site more inviting to your site visitors and creating a more professional overall appearance. It will also be easier to revise this content compared to editing each static web page one at a time. If you would like to use Server Side Includes on your website, the web pages that incorporate the content of some file must be with extension .shtml.
