An access log is a detailed list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a particular Internet site. Every single file which was requested for whatever reason shall be listed, so if you have a single page with three embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for any of the six files which were accessed when the website visitor opened the webpage. A log usually offers the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s OS, worldwide web browser and IP address. In some cases you may also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The information an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to write reports on the overall performance of an Internet site, besides the web statistics that your web hosting server may have created.
Access Log Manager in Shared Website Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs will be extremely simple when you buy a shared website hosting from our company. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, supplied with all the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs which is where you'll find the access logs too. As soon as you navigate there, you'll see a list of all the domain names hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform shall start producing an access log for each of them as early as you click on the On button, which you'll see on the right. If you don't require logs, disabling the option is just as simple and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button within the exact same section. All of the logs are downloadable, which means that you can comfortably save and manage them on your desktop computer or notebook.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our leading-edge website hosting platform will create access logs for every Internet site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this function is permitted. All domain names and subdomains that you have shall be listed in the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which we offer with all the accounts, so if you would like our system to start generating logs for any of them, you should simply click on the little button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You could disable this function anytime by following the exact same steps. You can find a Download link for each log inside the exact same section of the CP, so you can easily save the content produced by our system in .txt format with only a mouse click. An existing log file can be downloaded even after the option has been disabled, so you will still be able to see the data that has already been generated.
