An access log is a complete list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a certain Internet site. Every single file that was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have a single page with three embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the six files that were accessed when the site visitor opened the webpage. A log usually provides the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s OS, browser and IP address. Oftentimes you can also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your site. The data an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a PC and used to write reports on the efficiency of a website, besides the web stats which your hosting server may have generated.
Access Log Manager in Shared Website Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs will be extremely easy if you purchase a shared website hosting
from us. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which comes with all the accounts, features a section dedicated to different logs and that is where you'll find the access logs as well. As you navigate there, you will see a list of all the domain names
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 no longer require logs, disabling the option is just as quick and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button inside the very same section. All of the logs are downloadable, which means that you can conveniently save and manage them on your desktop computer or notebook.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our sophisticated web hosting platform will create access logs for any website hosted within a semi-dedicated server account, provided that this function is enabled. All domain names and subdomains that you have will be listed in the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which we provide with all of the accounts, so if you would like our system to start generating logs for each of them, you should just click on the compact button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You could disable this function whenever you want by following the exact same steps. You can find a Download link for every single log in the same exact section of the CP, so you can save the content generated by our system in .txt format with just 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 which has already been generated.
