Server Side Includes (SSI) is a simple server-side language, which enables you to incorporate text from a given source in a website. In the most common situation, the text from a single file is incorporated in a different one, giving a website the sense it is dynamic. As an example, if your site features ten webpages, 5 of them can include the content of any kind of file, such as horoscope.txt. In case you alter this text file, the updated content will appear on all five pages, which shall enable you to bring up to date your website faster and easier than if you had to update part of all 5 pages. Server Side Includes is at times employed to contain the output of simple commands, scripts or functions as well - a hit counter that's displayed on the site, the present date and time or the customer's IP address. Any web page that works by using SSI must have a unique extension - .shtml.
