An access log is a thorough list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a particular Internet site. Any file which was requested for whatever reason shall be listed, so if you have only one page with three embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for any of the 6 files that were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log normally offers the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s OS, web browser and IP address. Sometimes you may also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The info an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to prepare reports on the overall performance of a site, in addition to the web stats your web hosting server may have generated.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs shall be incredibly simple if you buy a cloud website hosting from us. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, provided with all the accounts, has a section on different logs which is where you'll find the access logs too. Once you navigate there, you will 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 creating an access log for any of them when you click on the On button, which you'll see on the right. If you no longer require logs, disabling the option is just as easy and can be done 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 PC or notebook.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our advanced hosting platform will create access logs for every Internet site hosted within a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this feature is enabled. All domain names and subdomains that you have shall be listed inside the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, that we offer with all of the accounts, so if you'd like 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 change the default Off option to On. You can disable this function anytime by following the very same steps. You'll find a Download link for each log inside the exact same section of the CP, so you could save the content generated by our system in .txt format with just a mouse click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the function has been disabled, so you'll still be able to check out the data which has already been generated.
