Server Side Includes (SSI) really is a set of directives that will allow you to contain the content of a text file inside an HTML file. In this manner, you're able to add any kind of content to a few different pages in your site and change it by simply updating just one text file. You can additionally add the output of various scripts so the current time and date, the IP address of the visitor or the attributes of a file show on your site. This will allow you to add some dynamic content to static webpages, making the site more appealing to your website visitors and creating a more professional appearance. It will also be simpler to update this content compared to editing each static page one by one. If you would like to use Server Side Includes in your website, the pages that include the content of some file should be with extension .shtml.
