An access log is a thorough list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a certain site. Every single file that was requested for whatever reason shall be listed, so if you have one webpage with 3 embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for each of the six files that were accessed when the website visitor opened the webpage. A log typically offers the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s OS, browser and IP address. Occasionally you may also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The data 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 write reports on the performance of a site, aside from the web statistics that your server may have produced.
Access Log Manager in Website Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs shall be incredibly simple when you buy a website hosting from us. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, included with all of the accounts, features a section dedicated to different logs and this is where you'll find the access logs as well. As soon as you navigate there, you shall see a list of all the domains hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform will start producing an access log for any of them as soon as you click on the On button, which you'll see on the right. If you no longer require logs, disabling the option is just as fast and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button within the very same section. All of the logs are downloadable, so you can effortlessly save and manage them on your desktop PC or notebook.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it shall not take more than a couple of mouse clicks to trigger the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The feature can be activated from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and this could be done individually for each and every domain or subdomain which you have inside your account. Once you log in and visit the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you will find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each of them. A single click shall activate the log generation and a second one shall disable it, so you can control this function with great efficiency. A Download link in the same section will permit you to save the compiled content as a text file, which you can then use on your notebook or computer. Even if the logs are deactivated, you will still be able to download the data that has been previously generated.
