An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a certain Internet site. Each and every file that was requested in some way shall be listed, so if you have only one webpage with 3 embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the 6 files that were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log normally contains the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s Operating System, worldwide web browser and IP address. Sometimes you could also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your site. The information which an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to prepare reports on the functionality of a site, independent of the web stats your web hosting server may have produced.
Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs shall be very simple when you acquire a shared hosting from us. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, provided with all of the accounts, features a section dedicated to different logs which is where you'll find the access logs too. Once you navigate 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 will start generating an access log for any 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 quick and can be done by clicking on the Off button in the same exact section. All the logs are downloadable, so you can comfortably save and manage them on your desktop computer or notebook.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall have the option to activate or disable the generation of access logs with only a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting CP. You'll find this function in the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access after you sign in. All it takes for our system to start creating logs is a single click on the On button that you will see there. The feature can be activated individually for any Internet site regardless of whether it uses a domain or a subdomain and you will find the full list of all the hosts inside that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with only a click and you can then view it manually or use some software on your computer. The log generation could be disabled by simply switching the On option to Off in the Logs section of your Control Panel.
