Server Side Includes (SSI) is a basic server-side language, which allows you to incorporate text from a specific source within a web page. In the most widespread scenario, the text from a single file is integrated in another, providing a website the sense that it is dynamic. For example, in case your site comprises of 10 web pages, five of them can have the content of some file, such as horoscope.txt. Once you alter this text file, the updated content will come up on all five pages, which will allow you to revise your website much easier than if you had to update an element of all 5 pages. Server Side Includes is at times utilized to include the output of simple commands, scripts or functions as well - a hit counter that is shown on the site, the current time and date or the visitor's IP address. Every web page that makes use of SSI will need to have a particular extension - .shtml.
