Server Side Includes (SSI) is a simple server-side language, which lets you incorporate text from a specified source within a web page. In the most widespread situation, the text from a single file is included in another, giving a site the feeling it is dynamic. As an example, in case your website features ten web pages, 5 of them can easily contain the content of some file, for example horoscope.txt. As soon as you alter this text file, the updated content will come up on all five web pages, which shall enable you to bring up to date your website much easier than if you had to change an element of all 5 web pages. Server Side Includes is in some cases employed to include the output of simple commands, scripts or functions as well - a hit counter that's shown on the site, the current date and time or the customer's IP address. Any webpage that uses SSI will need to have a unique extension - .shtml.
