An access log is a detailed list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a particular Internet site. Any file which was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have only one webpage with 3 embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for any of the 6 files that were accessed when the website visitor opened the webpage. A log typically shows the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s OS, worldwide web browser and IP address. In some cases you could also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The information that an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a PC and used to write reports on the overall performance of a site, aside from the web stats that your hosting server may have generated.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs shall be really simple when you buy a cloud website hosting from us. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, supplied with all the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs and this is where you'll find the access logs as well. Once you go there, you will see a list of all the domain names hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made 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 don't require logs, disabling the option is just as quick and can be done by clicking on the Off button inside the same exact 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 leading-edge website hosting platform shall create access logs for any site hosted within a semi-dedicated server account, provided that this function is permitted. All domain names and subdomains that you have will be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which we provide with all the accounts, so if you'd like our system to start producing logs for each of them, you should just click on the small button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You can deactivate this feature anytime by following the exact same steps. You can find a Download link for every single log in the exact same section of the Control Panel, so you can save the content produced by our system in .txt format with simply a click. An existing log file can be downloaded even after the feature has been deactivated, so you'll still be able to look at the data that has already been generated.
