An access log is a complete list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a certain Internet site. Any file which was requested for some reason shall be listed, so if you have a single page with 3 embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for any of the six files that were accessed when the website visitor opened the webpage. A log normally contains the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s OS, Internet browser and IP address. Sometimes you can also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The info an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to prepare reports on the efficiency of a website, independent of the web stats that your web hosting server may have created.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs will be incredibly easy if you get a cloud web hosting from us. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, supplied with all of the accounts, has a section on different logs which is where you will find the access logs as well. Once you go there, you will see a list of all the domains hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform shall start producing an access log for each of them when you click on the On button, that you will see on the right. If you don't need logs, disabling the option is just as quick and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button within the very same section. All the logs are downloadable, therefore you can comfortably save and manage them on your PC or laptop.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our leading-edge web hosting platform shall generate access logs for each and every Internet site hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this feature is permitted. All domains and subdomains that you have shall be listed inside the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, that we provide with all the accounts, so if you need our system to start creating logs for each 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 stop this feature anytime by following the exact same steps. You can find a Download link for each and every log within the exact same section of the CP, so you could save the content generated by our system in .txt format with just a mouse click. An existing log file can be downloaded even after the feature has been disabled, so you will still be able to check out the data which has already been generated.
