An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a certain Internet site. Every single file that was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have a single webpage with three embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the six files that were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log normally provides the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s Operating System, web browser and IP address. Oftentimes you can also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your website. The data which an access log file includes 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 performance of an Internet site, independent of the web stats that your web hosting server may have created.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs will be extremely easy when you acquire a cloud 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 too. 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 made cloud hosting platform will start generating an access log for any of them when you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you don't need logs, disabling the option is just as fast and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button in the same section. All of the logs are downloadable, which means that you can effortlessly save and manage them on your desktop PC or laptop.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our leading-edge hosting platform shall create access logs for every single site hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this feature is permitted. All domains and subdomains that you have shall 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 producing logs for each of them, you should just click on the compact button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You may stop this feature anytime by following exactly the same steps. You will find a Download link for each log in the same exact section of the Control Panel, so you may save the content produced by our system in .txt format with simply a click. An existing log file could be downloaded even after the feature has been disabled, so you will still be able to look at the data which has already been generated.
