A sitemap is a file that includes the different pages of an Internet site and the route to them through the sections of the Internet site. The web pages can be sorted visually or as plain text and such a file is really useful for two reasons. The first one is that it makes it much easier for the site visitors to locate a specific page they need, so they can navigate your website better and a lot faster, that in turn will increase their user experience and it'll be more likely that they will return to the Internet site or will recommend it to other people. The second reason is the fact that a sitemap makes it possible for search engines to index your content better, particularly when it's updated, so if users are looking for certain content, it's more likely that they'll find your Internet site as it will be listed higher in their search results. In case your site is not indexed effectively, it might not show up for some searches, so even when you have what people require, they will simply not get to the site.
SiteMap Generator in Shared Web Hosting
Our shared web hosting solutions feature a sitemap generator which is a part of our advanced Hepsia Control Panel. The instrument uses the exact same user-friendly Hepsia interface, so you could generate a sitemap for any of your domains and subdomains with a few clicks even if you haven't had a website before. There're a couple of options, which you could customize - the depth, which shows the number of levels within the site the sitemap should follow links, the maximum number of links that should be included and what kind of file types will show up on the sitemap. For the aforementioned option, you will be able to type or delete specific file extensions, which will be rather helpful if you have files which aren't generic for an Internet site like php or html, but are pdf or mp3 files, for example. In this way, your custom site content will be incorporated within the sitemap along with the web pages.
