An access log is a detailed list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a particular website. Any file that was requested for some reason shall be listed, so if you have only one page with 3 embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the 6 files that were accessed when the site visitor opened the page. A log typically shows the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s Operating System, Internet browser and IP address. Sometimes you can also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your website. The data an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to prepare reports on the efficiency of a site, in addition to the web statistics that your web hosting server may have generated.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs will be extremely simple when you purchase a cloud hosting
from us. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, supplied with all of the accounts, features a section dedicated to different logs and that 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 within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform will start producing an access log for any of them as soon as you click on the On button, that you will see on the right. If you no longer require logs, disabling the option is just as simple and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button within the same section. All the logs are downloadable, so you can effortlessly save and manage them on your PC or laptop.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server
account with us, it will not take more than several clicks to trigger the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The function could be enabled through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this could be done separately for each domain name or subdomain you have within your account. After you log in and navigate to the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you'll see a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to all of them. A single click shall trigger the log generation and another one shall disable it, so you can control this function with great ease. A Download link in the same section will enable you to save the compiled content as a text file, which you could then use on your personal computer. Whether or not the logs are disabled, you shall still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
