    What is the meaning of the statement "All URLs listed in the Sitemap must reside on the same host as the Sitemap"?

    Experts please help me to clear this concept.

    It sounds as if you have your site map on a different server/url to your actual website. Make sue they are on the same host. Your sitemap should simply be extension file domain.com/sitemap.xml
    visit xml-sitemap.com create a sitemap and put the file in the root directory of your website. That should resolve the issue.

    The sitemap should be upload in the same domain like xyz.com/sitemap.xml as only then google will consider this sitemap while crawling. If you upload it on another domain/host you wont be able to submit in webmaster for Google crawling purpose.

    Sitemap is an easy way for you to submit all your URLs to the Google index and get detailed reports about the visibility of your pages on Google. This helps search engines to more intelligently crawl a website and keep their results up to date.

    while submitting sitemap of your website means you are submitting all the URLs of your website on same host.

    Suppose if the Sitemap is located at - maindomain.com/dir/sitemap.xml , then it can't include urls from - maindomain.com. Or if the Sitemap is located at - maindomain.com/sitemap.xml , then it can't include urls from - subdomain.maindomain.com.
    So all urls listed in the Sitemap must reside on the same host as the Sitemap.
