A sitemap is a file that contains the different pages of an Internet site and the path to them through the sections of the website. The pages can be arranged visually or as plain text and this type of a file is rather useful for 2 reasons. The first one is that it makes it faster and easier for the website visitors to find a particular page they need, which means that they can navigate your site better and a lot faster, that in turn will increase their user experience and it will be more likely that they will revisit the website or will recommend it to other people. Another reason is that a sitemap permits search engines to index your website content better, particularly if it's updated, so if users are trying to find particular content, it is more likely that they'll come across your site because it will be listed higher in their search engine results. If your website is not indexed effectively, it may not show up for some searches, so even in case you have what people need, they will simply not get to the website.

As a more advanced feature, you can even select the file extensions that should be included in the sitemap - you could use the standard ones which include all most popular extensions a website uses like php, html, etcetera, however if your Internet site features more diverse content, you could also enter or delete an extension before you make the sitemap for a selected site.
SiteMap Generator in VPS Web Hosting
If you go for a virtual private server provided with the Hepsia Control Panel, you shall be able to take advantage of our tailor-made sitemap generator. The tool is very easy to use and generates an XML file which is search engine friendly, so your content will be indexed properly. The interface is very simple and with just a mouse click you can select the depth of the links that should be included, their amount, and also the file types which need to be included in the sitemap.
