A sitemap is a visual or text map of a site - an index of all pages organized in sections as they show up on the site. The sitemap is a single file and its presence may have a significant effect on the popularity of your site, especially if you have more content. It will make it possible for your visitors to look through the pages and find what they need way quicker, that will raise the possibility for them to return to the site or to share it with friends and colleagues. The sitemap is also required for search engines to index your site content better, which means that certain pages will appear in the results for specific searches, which might not happen without having a sitemap even if you have the required content. This is especially valid when you modify some pages because the sitemap informs the search engines that they need to crawl the site again so as to index the latest content. Having a sitemap these days is fundamental rather than an optional feature for every profitable Internet site.
SiteMap Generator in Shared Website Hosting
Our shared website hosting plans feature a sitemap generator which is part of our state-of-the-art Hepsia Control Panel. The instrument uses the very same user-friendly Hepsia interface, so you will be able to generate a sitemap for each of your domains and subdomains with a few clicks even if you have not had a website before. There are several options, that you can customize - the depth, which shows the number of levels in the website the sitemap should follow links, the highest number of links which should be included and what kind of file types will be visible on the sitemap. For the latter feature, you'll be able to type or delete certain file extensions, that can be very helpful in case you have files which are not generic for a website like php or html, but are pdf or mp3 files, for example. This way, your custom website content will be featured in the sitemap together with the webpages.
