Server Side Includes (SSI) is a basic server-side language, which lets you include text from a given source inside a website. In the most common case, the text from one file is incorporated in a different one, giving a site the feeling it is dynamic. As an example, if your site includes 10 pages, five of them can easily include the content of some file, for example horoscope.txt. In case you alter this text file, the updated content is going to appear on all five pages, which shall let you revise your site much easier than if you had to change part of all 5 web pages. Server Side Includes is in some cases utilized to include the output of simple commands, scripts or functions as well - a hit counter that is displayed on the site, the current date and time or the visitor's IP address. Every webpage that utilizes SSI will need to have a unique extension - .shtml.
