A sitemap is a file which includes the different pages of a site and the path to them through the sections of the site. The web pages can be sorted visually or as plain text and such a file is rather useful for two reasons. The first one is that it makes it much easier for the site visitors to locate a certain page they need, which means that they can navigate your Internet site better and more quickly, that in turn will improve their user experience and it'll be more likely that they will come back to the Internet site or will recommend it to other people. The second reason is that a sitemap allows search engines to index your content better, especially when it is updated, so when users are looking for particular content, it is more likely that they'll find your site because it will be listed higher in their search results. In case your website is not indexed efficiently, it might not appear for some searches, so even in case you have what people require, they will not get to the site.
SiteMap Generator in Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel that we provide with our hosting plans includes a built-in sitemap generator tool that will allow you to make a sitemap for each and every website hosted in the account with only a few clicks. The tool has an extremely intuitive point-and-click interface that comes with several options depending on how comprehensive you would like the sitemap to be. You'll be able to select the depth as well as the highest number of links to be listed. In case you offer various content on the site, you can also add and remove certain file extensions, which allows specific file types to be included or excluded from your sitemap. A drop-down menu will permit you to select every domain or subdomain hosted inside the account, so the sitemap file will be created right where it's needed and you won't have to do a thing manually.
