An access log is a complete list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a particular website. Every file that was requested for whatever reason shall be listed, so if you have a single webpage with 3 embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the six files which were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log normally contains the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s Operating System, browser and IP address. Oftentimes you could also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your website. The info that an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a PC and used to prepare reports on the efficiency of a site, aside from the web stats your hosting server may have created.
Access Log Manager in Shared Web Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs shall be very easy if you purchase a shared web hosting
from our company. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all the accounts, has a section on different logs and this is where you will find the access logs too. As soon as you navigate there, you'll see a list of all the domain names
hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform shall start creating 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 require logs, disabling the option is just as fast and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button inside the very same section. All of the logs are downloadable, therefore you can easily save and manage them on your PC or notebook.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our sophisticated hosting platform shall create access logs for any website hosted within a semi-dedicated server
account, assuming that this feature is activated. All domain names and subdomains that you have will be listed in the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, that we provide with all of the accounts, so if you would like our system to start generating logs for any of them, you should just click on the little button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You'll be able to stop this feature at any time by following the exact same steps. You will find a Download link for each and every log inside the same exact section of the CP, so you will be able to save the content gathered by our system in .txt format with no more than a mouse click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the feature has been deactivated, so you will still be able to look at the data which has already been generated.
