Server Side Includes (SSI) is a well-known server-side scripting language, used to incorporate the content of one file inside a second file. It is utilized primarily with online content and it could make a static HTML site much more dynamic. If you wish to have a daily quote displayed on numerous web pages on your site, as an example, you can create a text file and switch the quote in it every day. All of the webpages in which this file is incorporated are going to show the modified quote, so you'll not have to change them by hand every single time. SSI could also be used to include the output of simple functions rather than a static file - for example, the viewer's IP address, a hit counter or even the present date and time. In this way, you can make your internet site look much more professional and a lot more attractive to the website visitors. Web pages that use SSI have a .shtml extension.

Naturally, you don't have to turn into a developer for that as the necessary code can be copied from the Help article we have about Server Side Includes. If you'd like to use this function for your website, you must rename your website files from .html to .shtml and you will have to double-check if all links on your website point to the modified names.
