A sitemap is a visual or text map of a website - an index of all web pages grouped in sections as they appear on the site. The sitemap is a single file and its presence may have a crucial influence on the popularity of your website, especially if you have a lot of content. It will enable site visitors to go through the webpages and find what they need much faster, which will raise the possibility 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 that some pages will be in the results for certain searches, which may not happen without a sitemap even when you have the desired website content. This is especially valid if you update some pages since the sitemap tells the search engines that they need to crawl the site again to index the new content. Having a sitemap today is fundamental rather than an optional attribute for any prosperous site.

SiteMap Generator in Shared Website Hosting

If you host your sites in a shared website hosting account from our firm, you'll have a very easy-to-work-with sitemap generator readily available. This tool can be accessed through the Hepsia Control Panel and it'll permit you to select any of your domains or subdomains, so the sitemap file will be generated in the website directory where you want it. The simple interface will enable you to pick the total number of links that need to be indexed and how deep the indexing has to go. As a more advanced function, you could also select the file extensions that should be included inside the sitemap - you can use the default ones that include all most common extensions a site uses which include php, html, etc, but in case your site features more diverse content, you can also enter or delete an extension before you create the sitemap for a selected website.

SiteMap Generator in Dedicated Servers

The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel which is available with our dedicated server plans comes with a built-in sitemap generator that will permit you to make a search engine friendly sitemap with only a couple of clicks for any website hosted on your server. The instrument has a very easy-to-use interface and enables you to choose several options for the sitemap - the depth of the links the generator needs to follow through the web pages, the highest number of links which should be crawled, and exactly what file extensions to be included. With last mentioned option, you can add and / or remove extensions freely, so you'll be able to pick what content to be integrated into the sitemap. That way, you will be able to remove particular content and add any kind of custom files which you may have on the website and you may want to be included for visitors and search engines.
