Server Side Includes (SSI) is a simple server-side language, which allows you to include text from a specific source within a web page. In the most typical scenario, the text from a single file is incorporated in a different one, providing a site the feeling it is dynamic. For instance, 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 modify this text file, the new content will appear on all five web pages, which shall let you revise your site faster and easier than if you had to change a component of all five pages. Server Side Includes is sometimes employed to incorporate the output of basic commands, scripts or functions as well - a hit counter that's shown on the site, the current date and time or the customer's IP address. Any web page that makes use of SSI will need to have a special extension - .shtml.
