A sitemap is a visual or text map of a site - a list of all pages grouped in sections as they appear on the Internet site. The sitemap is a single file and its presence could have a crucial effect on the popularity of your website, particularly when you have a lot of content. It will allow your site visitors to browse the pages and find what they need considerably faster, that will increase the chance for them to return to the site or to share it with friends and colleagues. The sitemap is also required for search engines like google to index your site content better, so that some pages will show up in the results for certain searches, which might not happen without a sitemap even when you have the necessary website content. This is especially valid in case you modify some web pages as the sitemap informs the search engines that they need to crawl the site again so as to index the new content. Having a sitemap nowadays is fundamental rather than an optional feature for any successful Internet site.

The software instrument uses the very same user-friendly Hepsia interface, so you'll be able to make a sitemap for each of your domains and subdomains with several mouse clicks even if you have not had a website before. There're several options, which you can customize - the depth, which shows the number of levels inside the site the sitemap should follow links, the maximum number of links that should be included and what kind of file types will show up on the sitemap. For the aforementioned feature, you will be able to type or delete certain file extensions, which will be really helpful in case you have files which are not generic for a site like php or html, but are pdf or mp3 files, for example. This way, your custom content will be incorporated inside the sitemap in addition to the web pages.
