A sitemap is a visual or text map of an Internet site - a short list of all webpages arranged in sections as they appear on the site. The sitemap is a single file and its presence could have a substantial effect on the popularity of your Internet site, especially if you have a lot of content. It will permit website visitors to browse through the pages and find what they need considerably quicker, which will raise the chance for them to come back to the website or to show it to colleagues and friends. The sitemap is also essential for search engines to index your content better, so certain pages will appear in the results for particular searches, which will most likely not happen without a sitemap even if you have the required website content. This is especially valid when you modify some web pages as the sitemap tells the search engines that they need to crawl the website again in order to index the new content. Having a sitemap nowadays is a necessity rather than an optional feature for any successful website.
SiteMap Generator in Shared Web Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel that we provide with our shared web hosting packages features a built-in sitemap generator tool which will enable you to create a sitemap for each website hosted in the account with just a few clicks. The tool has a very intuitive point-and-click interface that comes with a couple of options depending on how comprehensive you would like the sitemap to be. You can select the depth plus the maximum number of links to be indexed. If you offer various content on the Internet site, you could also add and remove certain file extensions, which allows specific file types to be included or excluded from the sitemap. A drop-down menu will permit you to select every domain or subdomain hosted within the account, so the sitemap file will be created right where it's needed and you will not need to do a thing manually.
