An access log is a detailed list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a certain site. Each and every file that was requested in some way shall be listed, so if you have one page with 3 embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, 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 webpage. A log usually offers the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s OS, worldwide web browser and IP address. Occasionally you may also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The information that an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to write reports on the overall performance of an Internet site, aside from the web statistics which your hosting server may have produced.
Access Log Manager in Website Hosting
When you choose one of our website hosting plans, you'll get thorough access logs for all your websites. As soon as you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see a full list of the domains and subdomains that you've added or created within the hosting account. You'll only need to click on the On button, that is found on the right-hand side of each and every hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs immediately. To disable this feature, you'll need to follow the very same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains could be handled independently and at any time. You'll find a download link in the Logs section of the Control Panel for any log generated by our system, so you can save the file to your desktop or notebook and view it or use it through some log processing software.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it won't take more than several clicks to enable the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The function could be activated from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and this could be done separately for each and every domain or subdomain that you have inside your account. Once you log in and check out the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you'll discover a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to every one of them. A single click shall activate the log generation and a second one will disable it, so you can control this function with great efficiency. A Download link within the same section will enable you to save the gathered content as a text file, which you can then use on your laptop or computer. Whether or not the logs are disabled, you shall still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
