An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a given site. Any file that was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have one webpage with three embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for every of the six files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the page. A log typically offers the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s OS, web browser and IP address. Occasionally you could also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your site. The info an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a PC and used to prepare reports on the overall performance of an Internet site, besides the web stats that your web hosting server may have produced.
Access Log Manager in Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs shall be exceptionally simple if you buy a hosting from our company. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which comes with all the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs and that is where you shall find the access logs as well. As soon as you go there, you'll see a list of all the domains hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform will start generating an access log for any of them the instant you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you no longer need logs, disabling the option is just as quick and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button within the same exact section. All of the logs are downloadable, so you can easily save and manage them on your desktop computer or notebook.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you host your sites within a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall have the option to enable or disable the generation of access logs with no more than a couple of mouse clicks inside your Hepsia hosting CP. You'll find this feature in the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access once you sign in. All it takes for our system to start creating logs is a click on the On button which you can see there. The feature can be enabled separately for any website regardless of whether it uses a domain or a subdomain and you shall find a complete list of all the hosts in that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with only a click and you can then see it manually or use some software on your laptop or computer. The log generation can be stopped by simply switching the On option to Off inside the Logs section of your CP.
