Server Side Includes (SSI) is actually a set of directives that will enable you to contain the content of a text file within an HTML file. By doing this, you are able to add some content to a few different pages on your site and modify it by just updating an individual text file. You are able to furthermore add the output of different scripts in order that the present date and time, the IP address of the visitor or the attributes of a file show up on your website. This will enable you to incorporate some dynamic content to static pages, making the website more inviting to your website visitors and giving it a far more professional overall look. It will be much easier to revise this content as compared to updating every static web page one by one. If you want to use Server Side Includes on your website, the web pages that include the content of some file need to be with extension .shtml.
