Server Side Includes (SSI) is a range of directives that will allow you to contain the content of a text file within an HTML file. This way, you'll be able to add any kind of content to a few different web pages on your website and alter it simply by updating just one text file. You're able to also 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 shall allow you to add some dynamic content to static pages, making the site more inviting to your website visitors and creating a more professional overall appearance. It will be much easier to revise this content in comparison to updating every static page one by one. If you would like to use Server Side Includes on your website, the pages that contain the content of some file must be with extension .shtml.
