It's employed mainly with online content and it could help make a static HTML site far more dynamic. If you want to have a daily quote shown on several pages on your website, for instance, you can create a text file and replace the quote in it every single day. All webpages where this file is integrated are going to display the modified quote, so you'll not need to change them personally each time. SSI can also be used to incorporate the output of basic functions as opposed to a static file - for instance, the client's IP address, a hit counter or maybe the current date and time. In this manner, you may make your internet site look far more professional and more appealing to the website visitors. Pages that employ SSI get a .shtml extension.
