What is a sitemap 

A sitemap is a file that contains a list of all the pages on a website, organized hierarchically. It provides metadata about each page, such as its URL, date of last update, and importance relative to other pages on the site.

2. In the left-hand menu, click on "Sitemaps."

Do I have to send my sitemap regularly or only once?

You do not need to constantly submit your sitemap to search engines. Once you have created a sitemap and submitted it to search engines like Google, they will automatically crawl your sitemap periodically to look for updates and changes.

However, it's a good practice to update your sitemap regularly as you add new content to your website. This can help search engines to discover and index your new pages more quickly. You can resubmit your updated sitemap to Google Search Console if you have made significant changes to your website's structure or content, but in most cases, the search engine will detect the changes and update its index automatically.
