Server Side Includes (SSI) is a simple server-side language, which lets you incorporate text from a given source in a web page. In the most popular case, the text from one file is integrated in another, providing a website the sense that it is dynamic. For instance, if your website consists of 10 webpages, 5 of them can have the content of any kind of file, like horoscope.txt. Once you change this text file, the modified content will appear on all of the five webpages, which shall help you bring up to date your site much easier than if you had to modify part of all 5 pages. Server Side Includes is at times utilized to incorporate the output of simple commands, scripts or functions as well - a hit counter that is displayed on the website, the present time and date or the visitor's IP address. Any web page that utilizes SSI will need to have a unique extension - .shtml.
