A sitemap is a file which contains the different pages of a website and the route to them through the sections of the site. The webpages can be sorted visually or as plain text and such a file is really useful for 2 reasons. The first is that it makes it faster and easier for the site visitors to find a particular page they need, so they can navigate your website better and much faster, which in turn will improve their user experience and it will be more likely that they will revisit the website or will recommend it to other people. One more reason is that a sitemap enables search engines to index your site content better, especially when it is updated, so if users are trying to find specific content, it's much more likely that they'll come across your website since it will be listed higher in their search engine results. If your site is not indexed effectively, it may not appear for some searches, so even when you have what people need, they will simply not get to the site.
SiteMap Generator in Shared Web Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel that we offer with our shared web hosting solutions has a built-in sitemap generator software tool which will permit you to generate a sitemap for any website hosted in the account with only a few clicks. The tool features a very intuitive point-and-click interface that comes with a couple of options depending on how comprehensive you would like the sitemap to be. You could choose the depth plus the maximum number of links to be indexed. In case you offer various content on your site, you can also add and remove specific file extensions, which allows specific file types to be included or excluded from the sitemap. A drop-down menu will enable you to choose each domain or subdomain hosted within the account, so the sitemap file will be generated right where it is needed and you won't have to do anything manually.
