A sitemap is a visual or text map of a site - a short list of all pages arranged in sections as they show up on the website. The sitemap is a single file and its presence can have a crucial impact on the popularity of your website, especially when you have more content. It will allow your website visitors to look through the pages and find what they need much faster, that will increase the possibility for them to return to the site or to show it to friends and colleagues. The sitemap is also needed for search engines to index your site content better, which means that certain pages will be in the results for certain searches, which may not happen without having a sitemap even if you have the desired content. This is especially valid when you modify some pages since the sitemap informs the search engines that they need to crawl the site again to index the latest content. Having a sitemap today is a necessity rather than an optional feature for every prosperous website.
SiteMap Generator in Cloud Web Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel that we offer with our cloud web hosting plans features a built-in sitemap generator software tool that will allow you to generate a sitemap for any website hosted in the account with only a couple of clicks. The tool has a very intuitive point-and-click interface that comes with several options depending on how detailed you'd like the sitemap to be. You can pick the depth as well as the maximum number of links to be indexed. If you offer various content on the website, you could also add and remove certain file extensions, which allows particular 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 is needed and you won't need to do anything manually.
