An access log is a thorough list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a certain site. Every file which was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have one page with three embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for each of the 6 files that were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log usually shows the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s Operating System, browser and IP address. Sometimes you could also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your website. The data that 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 write reports on the functionality of an Internet site, in addition to the web stats which your server may have produced.
Access Log Manager in Website Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs will be exceptionally easy if you buy a website hosting from our company. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, supplied with all of the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs and this is where you'll find the access logs too. As soon as you navigate there, you shall see a list of all the domain names hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform will start producing an access log for any of them as soon as 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 within the exact same section. All of the logs are downloadable, which means that you can effortlessly save and manage them on your desktop computer or laptop.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our advanced web hosting platform shall generate access logs for each and every site hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as long as this feature is enabled. All domain names and subdomains that you have will be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, that we provide with all of the accounts, so if you would like our system to start creating logs for any of them, you should just click on the small button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You can deactivate this feature whenever you want by following the same steps. You can find a Download link for each and every log in the very same section of the Control Panel, so you will be able to save the content produced by our system in .txt format with just a click. An existing log file could be downloaded even after the option has been disabled, so you will still be able to view the data that has already been generated.
