Server Side Includes (SSI) is a simple server-side language, which lets you incorporate text from a specified source in a web page. In the most widespread scenario, the text from one file is integrated in another, providing a site the sense that it is dynamic. For example, if your website is comprised of ten webpages, five of them can easily contain the content of some file, like horoscope.txt. Any time you modify this text file, the updated content is going to appear on all five webpages, which will let you bring up to date your website much easier than if you had to update part of all 5 pages. Server Side Includes is at times used to incorporate the output of basic 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 uses SSI must have a particular extension - .shtml.
