A sitemap is a file which includes the different pages of a website and the way to them through the sections of the site. The webpages can be organized visually or as plain text and such a file is really useful for 2 reasons. The first one is that it makes it a lot easier for the website visitors to discover a specific page they need, so they can navigate your site better and faster, that in turn will increase their user experience and it'll be more likely that they will come back to the site or will recommend it to other people. Another reason is that a sitemap permits search engines to index your site content better, especially when it's updated, so when users are looking for certain content, it's much more likely that they'll come across your site since it will be listed higher in their search engine results. If your website is not indexed effectively, it might not show up for some searches, so even when you have what people want, they will not get to the website.
SiteMap Generator in Website Hosting
Our website hosting packages feature a sitemap generator which is a part of our leading-edge Hepsia Control Panel. The tool uses the very same user-friendly Hepsia interface, so you can generate a sitemap for each of your domains and subdomains with a couple of clicks even if you have never had a website before. There are several options, which you will be able to customize - the depth, which shows how many levels in the website the sitemap should follow links, the highest number of links that should be included and what file types will be visible on the sitemap. For the latter feature, you'll be able to type or delete specific file extensions, which will be rather helpful if you have files which are not generic for a site like php or html, but are pdf or mp3 files, for example. In this way, your custom site content will be included inside the sitemap together with the web pages.
