A sitemap is a visual or text map of a site - an index of all pages grouped in sections as they show up on the site. The sitemap is a single file and its presence may have a crucial impact on the popularity of your site, especially when you have a lot of content. It will make it possible for visitors to browse through the web pages and find what they need quicker, which will raise the possibility for them to come back to the website or to share it with colleagues and friends. The sitemap is also required for search engines to index your content better, so some pages will show up in the results for certain searches, which will most likely not happen without a sitemap even if you have the needed website content. This is especially valid when you modify some pages since the sitemap informs the search engines that they need to crawl this Internet site again in order to index the new content. Having a sitemap nowadays is essential rather than an optional feature for any successful site.
SiteMap Generator in Shared Website Hosting
Our shared website hosting packages feature a sitemap generator which is a part of our advanced Hepsia Control Panel. The software tool uses the exact same intuitive Hepsia interface, so you'll be able to generate a sitemap for each of your domains and subdomains with several clicks even if you've never had a website before. There're a couple of options, which you can customize - the depth, which shows how many levels inside the Internet site the sitemap should follow links, the maximum number of links that have to be included and what kind of file types will show up on the sitemap. For the latter feature, you'll be able to type or delete certain file extensions, which will be very helpful if you have files that are not generic for an Internet site like php or html, but are pdf or mp3 files, for example. That way, your custom site content will be incorporated inside the sitemap in addition to the web pages.
