Server Side Includes (SSI) is a range of directives that will permit you to incorporate the content of a text file inside an HTML file. By doing this, you are able to add any kind of content to few different pages in your site and change it just by editing one text file. You can also incorporate the output of distinctive scripts so that the current time and date, the IP address of the website visitor or the properties of some file appear on your site. This will help you incorporate some dynamic content to static web pages, making the site more inviting to your site visitors and creating a more professional overall look. It will also be quicker to update this content as compared to updating each static web page one by one. If you want to use Server Side Includes on your website, the pages that incorporate the content of some file must be with extension .shtml.
