A sitemap is a visual or text map of a website - an index of all webpages grouped in sections as they show up on the Internet site. The sitemap is a single file and its presence may have a substantial effect on the popularity of your website, particularly when you have a lot of content. It will allow visitors to search the webpages and find what they need considerably faster, that will raise the chance for them to return to the Internet site or to show it to friends and colleagues. The sitemap is also required for search engines like google to index your content better, which means that certain pages will show up in the results for certain searches, which may not happen without having a sitemap even when you have the desired site content. This is especially valid when you update some web pages as the sitemap tells the search engines that they must crawl this website again so as to index the new content. Having a sitemap today is fundamental rather than an optional attribute for every thriving website.
SiteMap Generator in Web Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel which we provide with our web hosting solutions features a built-in sitemap generator software tool that will enable you to make a sitemap for any website hosted in the account with just a few clicks. The tool has a really intuitive point-and-click interface which comes with several options depending on how detailed you wish the sitemap to be. You can choose the depth as well as the maximum number of links to be indexed. In case you offer miscellaneous content on the website, you could also add and remove specific file extensions, which allows certain file types to be included or excluded from the sitemap. A drop-down menu will enable you to select every domain or subdomain hosted inside the account, so the sitemap file will be generated right where it's needed and you will not need to do anything manually.
