A sitemap is a file which contains 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 simple text and this sort of a file is extremely useful for 2 reasons. The first one is that it makes it a lot easier for the visitors to discover a certain page they need, which means that they can navigate your Internet site better and a lot faster, that in turn will increase their user experience and it will be more likely that they will come back to the Internet site or will recommend it to other people. One more reason is that a sitemap allows search engines to index your content better, particularly when it is updated, so when users are looking for specific content, it's much more likely that they will come across your website since it will be listed higher in their search results. In case your Internet site is not indexed efficiently, it may not show up for some searches, so even in case you have what people need, they will not get to your site.
SiteMap Generator in Shared Website Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel which we offer with our shared website hosting plans features a built-in sitemap generator instrument that will allow you to create a sitemap for any website hosted in the account with just a couple of clicks. The tool features a very intuitive point-and-click interface which comes with several options depending on how comprehensive you'd like the sitemap to be. You will be able to choose the depth and the highest number of links to be indexed. In case you offer various content on your site, you may also add and remove certain file extensions, which allows particular file types to be included or excluded from your sitemap. A drop-down menu will allow you to choose any domain or subdomain hosted inside the account, so the sitemap file will be created right where it is needed and you will not need to do a thing manually.
