Server Side Includes (SSI) is a simple server-side language, which allows you to incorporate text from a specific source inside a web page. In the most common case, the text from one file is integrated in a different one, giving a website the feeling that it's dynamic. For example, in case your website includes ten webpages, five of them can contain the content of any kind of file, for example horoscope.txt. Once you change this text file, the new content will appear on all five pages, which will help you bring up to date your site faster and easier than if you had to update an element of all five pages. Server Side Includes is at times utilized to contain the output of simple commands, scripts or functions as well - a hit counter that's shown on the site, the current time and date or the customer's IP address. Any web page that makes use of SSI must have a particular extension - .shtml.
