Server Side Includes (SSI) is actually a list of directives that will enable you to include the content of a text file inside an HTML file. This way, you are able to add some content to a few different web pages on your website and adjust it just by editing a single text file. You are able to furthermore incorporate the output of different scripts in order that the current date and time, the IP address of the website visitor or the attributes of some file show up on your site. This will help you incorporate some dynamic content to static webpages, making the website more appealing to your site visitors and creating a professional visual appearance. It will also be easier to update this content when compared with updating every static page one by one. If you want to use Server Side Includes on your site, the web pages that incorporate the content of some file should be with extension .shtml.
