How does the Sitemap Generator 'generate' sitemaps? What role do sitemaps have and why are they extremely important SEO-wise?
A sitemap is a file which contains the different pages of a site and the route to them through the sections of the Internet site. The webpages can be sorted visually or as plain text and this type of a file is extremely useful for 2 reasons. The first one is that it makes it faster and easier for the site visitors to discover a certain page they need, so they can navigate your Internet site better and much faster, which in turn will increase their user experience and it will be more likely that they will come back to the site or will recommend it to other people. Another reason is the fact that a sitemap permits search engines to index your content better, especially if it is updated, so if users are looking for particular content, it's much more likely that they'll find your site as it will be listed higher in their search results. In case your site is not indexed effectively, it might not show up for some searches, so even when you have what people need, they will simply not get to your site.
SiteMap Generator in Cloud Web Hosting
In case you host your sites in a cloud web hosting
account from our company, 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 allow you to select any one of your domains or subdomains, so the sitemap file will be generated in the website directory where you want it. The simple interface will permit you to select the overall number of links which need to be indexed and how deep the indexing should go. As a more complex function, you can also choose the file extensions which have to be included in the sitemap - you could use the standard ones that include all most popular extensions an Internet site uses which include php, html, and so on, but in case your Internet site includes more diverse content, you'll be able to enter or delete an extension before you generate the sitemap for a given site.
SiteMap Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all our semi-dedicated server
plans includes a sitemap generator that is very simple to use. The point-and-click user interface will allow you to generate a sitemap for any site accommodated in the account with ease even in case you have no previous experience, so you will be able to have a search engine friendly sitemap in a short time. You can select how many links will be featured and how many levels down your webpages these links will follow, so it is your decision how detailed the sitemap will be. In case you offer custom made content, you will also be able to add any file extension present on the Internet site and if required, to remove extensions from the default ones. This way you can easily make an entirely customizable sitemap which will satisfy your specific requirements in terms of what exactly it ought to include.
SiteMap Generator in VPS Servers
In case you go for a VPS server
provided with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to take advantage of our custom made sitemap generator. The instrument is very easy-to-work-with and makes an XML file which is search engine friendly, so your content will be indexed appropriately. The interface is rather simple and with just a click you can pick the depth of the links which should be included, their total number, and the file types which should be included in the sitemap. The last option is very useful if you need only particular content to be present in the sitemap because you'll be able to add and remove file extensions. As an illustration, you could add .doc and .pdf files and remove .php files, so the sitemap will show the path to documents and not to standard website pages. The generator enables you to choose any domain or subdomain hosted on your VPS through a simple drop-down menu, which means that any sitemap will be generated right where you need it.

You will be able to generate a sitemap for each and every Internet site hosted on the server with just a couple of clicks and select how many levels down the web pages links should be crawled and how many links as a whole have to be included. To customize your sitemap even further, you'll also be given the option to add custom file extensions to it which the generator will include, or you can easily delete any file extension from the default ones that you'll find if you open the Sitemap section of the Control Panel. In this way, you could easily include specific parts of your Internet site and remove others, so the sitemap could include any custom content which you may offer on the Internet site instead of only the regular webpages.
