A sitemap is a visual or text map of an Internet site - a list of all web pages arranged in sections as they appear on the site. The sitemap is a single file and its presence may have a considerable effect on the popularity of your website, especially if you have more content. It will permit visitors to browse the webpages and find what they need way quicker, which will raise the possibility for them to return to the site or to show it to colleagues and friends. The sitemap is also required for search engines like google to index your site content better, so certain pages will appear in the results for specific searches, which will most likely not happen without a sitemap even when you have the desired content. This is especially valid when you modify some web pages since the sitemap informs the search engines that they need to crawl the site again to index the new content. Having a sitemap today is a necessity rather than an optional feature for any prosperous site.

SiteMap Generator in Cloud Hosting

In case you host your sites in a cloud hosting account from our company, you'll have a very intuitive sitemap generator readily available. The software tool can be accessed via the Hepsia Control Panel and it'll permit you to pick any of your domains or subdomains, so the sitemap file will be made in the site directory where you want it. The simple user interface will allow you to pick the overall number of links which should be indexed and how deep the indexing has to go. As a more complex function, you could also pick the file extensions that should be included in the sitemap - you could use the default ones which include all most common extensions a website uses such as php, html, etc, but if your site contains more diverse content, you'll be able to enter or delete an extension before you create the sitemap for a certain website.
