An access log is a thorough list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a given website. Each and every file that was requested for whatever reason shall be listed, so if you have a single webpage with 3 embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for any of the 6 files which were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log usually contains the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s OS, web browser and IP address. Occasionally you may also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The information an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to prepare reports on the performance of an Internet site, aside from the web statistics that your server may have produced.
Access Log Manager in Web Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs will be exceptionally easy if you acquire a web hosting from us. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, supplied with all the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs which is where you shall find the access logs as well. Once you navigate there, you shall see a list of all the domain names hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform shall start generating an access log for each of them as soon as you click on the On button, which you'll 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 in the very same section. All of the logs are downloadable, so you can conveniently save and manage them on your PC or notebook.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it won't take more than several mouse clicks to permit the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The feature may be enabled through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this could be done individually for every single domain name or subdomain you have inside your account. Once you log in and check out the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you will find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to all of them. A single click will trigger the log generation and another one will deactivate it, so you can control this function with great comfort. A Download link in the same section will enable you to save the gathered content as a text file, that you may then use on your computer system. Whether or not the logs are disabled, you shall still be able to download the data that has been previously generated.
