Server Side Includes (SSI) is a group of directives that will enable you to include the content of a text file in an HTML file. By doing this, you can add some content to a few different web pages in your website and adjust it simply by editing a single text file. You can additionally incorporate the output of various scripts in order that the current time and date, the IP address of the visitor or the properties of a file show up on your website. This shall enable you to add some dynamic content to static webpages, making the website more desirable to your site visitors and giving it a professional overall appearance. It will also be easier to update this content in comparison with updating every static web 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 need to be with extension .shtml.
