A sitemap is a visual or text map of a site - an index of all webpages grouped in sections as they appear on the site. The sitemap is a single file and its presence may have a significant effect on the popularity of your website, particularly if you have a lot of content. It will allow site visitors to go through the webpages and find what they need much quicker, which will raise the chance for them to come back to the website or to share it with friends and colleagues. The sitemap is also required for search engines to index your content better, so some pages will be in the results for certain searches, which may not happen without a sitemap even when you have the needed website content. This is especially valid when you modify some pages as the sitemap tells the search engines that they must crawl the site again so as to index the new content. Having a sitemap nowadays is a necessity rather than an optional feature for every prosperous website.

SiteMap Generator in Cloud Hosting

If you host your websites in a cloud hosting account from our company, you'll have a really intuitive sitemap generator readily available. The tool can be accessed through the Hepsia Control Panel and it will permit you to choose any of your domains or subdomains, so the sitemap file will be created in the site directory where you want it. The straightforward interface will allow you to select the total number of links that need to be indexed and how deep the indexing should go. As a more advanced feature, you can even choose the file extensions which have to be included in the sitemap - you may use the default ones that include all most common extensions an Internet site uses such as php, html, etcetera, but if your website contains more diverse content, you can also enter or delete an extension before you create the sitemap for a specific website.
