An access log is a thorough list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a particular website. Every single file that was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have a single webpage with three embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for any of the 6 files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the page. A log usually shows the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s Operating System, web browser and IP address. Oftentimes you could also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your site. The info which 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 overall performance of an Internet site, besides the web stats that your server may have produced.
Access Log Manager in Shared Website Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs shall be exceptionally simple when you purchase a shared website hosting
from us. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, supplied with all of the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs and this is where you shall find the access logs too. As soon as 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 cloud hosting platform will 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 don't require logs, disabling the option is just as simple and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button within the same section. All the logs are downloadable, so you can easily save and manage them on your desktop computer or notebook.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server
account with our company, it won't take more than a couple of clicks to trigger the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The feature can be permitted via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this may be done individually for every single domain name or subdomain which you have inside your account. When you log in and navigate to the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you will find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to every one of them. A single click shall enable the log generation and another one will deactivate it, so you can control this function with great simplicity. A Download link within the same section will permit you to save the generated content as a text file, which you can then use on your personal computer. Even when the logs are deactivated, you'll still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
