|Can i host my sitemap on another domain?||Richard Pettet||8/23/11 1:32 AM|
I have read the FAQs and checked for similar issues: YES
My site's URL (web address) is: www.deferolaw.com
I have a Ning network which has a rubbish inbuilt sitemap. I have created a proper sitemap but can't put it in the root dorectory on Ning so have placed it on another server under a different domain and altered my robots.txt to reflect where the sitemap is now residing.
Will this work?

Yes - specify it in your robots.txt file also and make sure you use absolute URL in your XML Sitemap Right now http://www.deferolawdata.com/sitemap.xml is giving 404 Error

Hey, thanks Joydeep for getting back to me. I'm currently redoing the sitemap because there were loads of invalid urls. Yes, am using absolute urls so i'll give it a go. thanks again

Do let us all know how it goes - Seems interesting - I never knew we could host our site's sitemap on some external domain. Thanks Joydeep!
