An access log is a complete list of all the files that 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 page with three embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for any of the six files that were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log typically offers the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s Operating System, Internet browser and IP address. Oftentimes you may also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The information an access log file features 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 efficiency of a website, aside from the web stats which your server may have generated.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs will be incredibly simple if you purchase a cloud web hosting
from us. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, included with all the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs and that is where you will find the access logs as well. As you go there, you'll see a list of all the domain names hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform shall start producing an access log for any of them the instant 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 quick and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button in the exact same section. All of the logs are downloadable, which means that you can comfortably save and manage them on your PC or laptop.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our state-of-the-art website hosting platform will create access logs for every single Internet site hosted in a semi-dedicated server
account, as long as this function is permitted. All domain names and subdomains that you have will be listed in the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, that we offer with all the accounts, so if you need our system to start creating logs for any of them, you should simply click on the small button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You may deactivate this function whenever you want by following exactly the same steps. You'll find a Download link for each log inside the exact same section of the CP, so you may save the content gathered by our system in .txt format with simply a click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the function has been disabled, so you will still be able to view the data that has already been generated.
