Server Side Includes (SSI) is a range of directives that will enable you to contain the content of a text file inside an HTML file. In this way, you can add any kind of content to numerous webpages in your website and modify it by just updating just one text file. You can additionally incorporate the output of various scripts so the current date and time, the IP address of the visitor or the properties of some file show up on your site. This will let you incorporate some dynamic content to static pages, making the website more inviting to your website visitors and giving it a much more professional overall appearance. It will be quicker to revise this content compared to updating every static page one by one. If you would like to use Server Side Includes in your website, the web pages that include the content of some file must be with extension .shtml.
