An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a particular website. Any file that was requested for whatever reason shall be listed, so if you have just one webpage with 3 embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for each of the six files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the page. A log usually provides the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s Operating System, web browser and IP address. Sometimes you may also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The info which an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to write reports on the functionality of an Internet site, in addition to the web stats that your hosting server may have produced.
Access Log Manager in Shared Web Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs shall be incredibly easy if you acquire a shared web hosting from us. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, supplied with all the accounts, features a section on different logs which is where you shall find the access logs as well. When you navigate there, you will see a list of all the domains hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform shall start producing an access log for each of them the instant you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you don't need logs, disabling the option is just as quick and can be done by clicking on the Off button within the same section. All of the logs are downloadable, therefore you can easily save and manage them on your PC or notebook.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our sophisticated web hosting platform shall create access logs for each website hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, as long as this feature is activated. All domains and subdomains that you have will be listed in the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which we provide with all of the accounts, so if you want our system to start producing logs for each of them, you should simply click on the compact button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You can disable this feature at any time by following the exact same steps. You'll find a Download link for each log within the same section of the CP, so you may save the content generated by our system in .txt format with just a click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the feature has been deactivated, so you will still be able to look at the data that's already been generated.
