An access log is a thorough list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a certain site. Every single file which 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 example, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for any of the 6 files that were accessed when the website visitor opened the page. A log typically contains the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s OS, web browser and IP address. Oftentimes you may also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your site. The information which an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to prepare reports on the performance of an Internet site, aside from the web stats that your hosting server may have produced.
Access Log Manager in Web Hosting
When you opt for one of our web hosting packages, you will get detailed access logs for all your Internet sites. 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 you have added or created inside the hosting account. You will simply 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 stop this function, you'll have to follow the very same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be handled separately and whenever you want. You'll find a download link in the Logs section of the Control Panel for every log generated by our system, so you can save the file to your personal computer and view it or use it via some log processing software.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it shall not take more than several mouse clicks to trigger the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The function could be permitted via the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this could be done individually for each and every domain or subdomain that you have within your account. When you log in and visit the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you'll discover a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to all of them. One click will enable the log generation and another one shall disable it, so you can control this feature with great comfort. A Download link in the same section will enable you to save the compiled content as a text file, that you can then use on your laptop or computer. Whether or not the logs are deactivated, you will still be able to download the data that has been previously generated.
