Server Side Includes (SSI) is a list of directives that will enable you to contain the content of a text file in an HTML file. By doing this, you can add any kind of content to numerous pages on your website and change it just by modifying an individual text file. You can also add the output of distinctive scripts in order that the present date and time, the IP address of the website visitor or the attributes of a file appear on your website. This will let you incorporate some dynamic content to static webpages, making the website more appealing to your website visitors and giving it a more professional overall appearance. It will also be simpler to update this content when compared with editing every static page one at a time. If you want to use Server Side Includes on your website, the web pages that incorporate the content of some file need to be with extension .shtml.
