Server Side Includes (SSI) is a range of directives that will permit you to contain the content of a text file inside an HTML file. In this manner, you'll be able to add some content to few different web pages in your site and modify it by simply editing a single text file. You are able to also add the output of distinctive scripts so the present date and time, the IP address of the visitor or the attributes of a file show up on your website. This will allow you to incorporate some dynamic content to static web pages, making the website more desirable to your website visitors and giving it a more professional look and feel. It will be simpler to update this content compared to editing each static page one at a time. If you want to use Server Side Includes in your site, the web pages that incorporate the content of any kind of file need to be with extension .shtml.
