A sitemap is a file which includes the different pages of a website and the way to them through the sections of the site. The webpages can be organized visually or as simple text and this type of a file is extremely useful for two reasons. The first is that it makes it faster and easier for the site visitors to find a specific page they need, so they can navigate your site better and much faster, which in turn will increase their user experience and it will be more likely that they will return to the website or will recommend it to other people. The second reason is that a sitemap makes it possible for search engines to index your website content better, particularly when it is updated, so if users are interested in certain content, it's more likely that they will find your website since it will be listed higher in their search results. If your website is not indexed well, it may not appear for some searches, so even in case you have what people require, they will simply not get to the website.
SiteMap Generator in Shared Website Hosting
If you host your Internet sites in a shared website hosting account from our firm, you'll have a very intuitive sitemap generator readily available. This tool can be accessed from the Hepsia Control Panel and it will permit you to select any of your domains or subdomains, so the sitemap file will be created in the website directory where you want it. The simple user interface will allow you to select the overall number of links which need to be indexed and how deep the indexing should go. As a more complex feature, you can also select the file extensions which should be included within the sitemap - you could use the standard ones which include all most common extensions a website uses for example php, html, etc, but in case your Internet site includes more diverse content, you can also enter or delete an extension before you create the sitemap for a particular site.
SiteMap Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
Making a sitemap will take only several clicks when you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account from us since we will provide you with an auto generation software instrument which will permit you to create a sitemap through an easy interface. The output file is search engine friendly and it will be created within the site folder where you need it. The generator will enable you to decide how many links to be included in the sitemap and how many levels deep these links should go. As a more advanced option you can also pick what file types to be present or not by entering custom file extensions or erasing some of the pre-specified ones. In this way, you can easily customize the sitemap and incorporate any custom content which isn't a part of a standard Internet site like documents. If needed, you'll be able to create a new sitemap at any time in case you perform a major update on your Internet site.

The last option will allow you to focus on specific content on your website because you'll be able to remove generic site pages and include custom extensions, like .pdf and .epub in case you offer e-books.

With the latter option, you could add and remove extensions freely, so you'll be able to select what content to be incorporated into the sitemap. In this way, you'll be able to remove certain content and add any kind of custom files that you may have on the site and you may wish to be included for site visitors and search engines.
