A sitemap is a file that contains the different pages of an Internet site and the path to them through the sections of the Internet site. The webpages can be organized visually or as plain text and this sort of a file is extremely useful for two reasons. The first one is that it makes it a lot easier for the site visitors to find a particular page they need, which means that they can navigate your Internet site better and a lot quicker, which in turn will improve their user experience and it will be more likely that they will come back to the website or will recommend it to other people. The second reason is that a sitemap permits search engines to index your website content better, especially when it's updated, so if users are searching for certain content, it's much 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 efficiently, it might not show up for some searches, so even if you have what people require, they will simply not get to your website.
SiteMap Generator in Web Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel which we offer with our web hosting packages comes with a built-in sitemap generator software tool which will allow you to make a sitemap for each and every website hosted in the account with only a couple of clicks. The tool features a very intuitive point-and-click interface which comes with several options depending on how extensive you'd like the sitemap to be. You could select the depth as well as the maximum number of links to be indexed. In case you offer miscellaneous content on your site, you could 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 enable you to select each domain or subdomain hosted in the account, so the sitemap file will be generated right where it is needed and you won't need to do a thing manually.
