An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a certain Internet site. Every file which was requested in some way shall be listed, so if you have only one webpage with 3 embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for any of the six files that were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log normally contains the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s OS, worldwide web browser and IP address. Occasionally you can also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your site. The info that an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to write reports on the overall performance of an Internet site, besides the web stats that your hosting server may have produced.
Access Log Manager in Website Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs will be very simple when you acquire a website hosting from our company. 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. As you navigate there, you'll 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 creating an access log for each of them when you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you no longer require logs, disabling the option is just as fast and can be done by clicking on the Off button in the exact same section. All the logs are downloadable, so you can easily save and manage them on your PC or notebook.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll have the option to activate or deactivate the generation of access logs with only a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting CP. You'll find this feature in the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access once you sign in. All it takes for our system to start generating logs is one click on the On button that you'll see there. The feature can be enabled independently for any website regardless if it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you will find a full list of all the hosts inside that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with a click and you could then look at it manually or use some software on your PC. The log generation may be disabled by simply changing the On option to Off within the Logs section of your CP.
