An access log is a thorough list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a certain website. Every single file that was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have one webpage with three embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the 6 files that were accessed when the site visitor opened the page. A log normally offers the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s Operating System, browser and IP address. Sometimes you can also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The data that an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a PC and used to prepare reports on the performance of a site, besides the web statistics that your hosting server may have produced.
Access Log Manager in Web Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs shall be really simple if you get a web hosting from our company. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which comes with all of the accounts, features a section on different logs and this is where you'll find the access logs as well. Once you go there, you'll 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, that you will see on the right. If you don't need logs, disabling the option is just as quick and can be done by clicking on the Off button in the same section. All the logs are downloadable, which means that you can effortlessly save and manage them on your PC or laptop.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our state-of-the-art website hosting platform shall generate access logs for each and every website hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this feature is permitted. All domains and subdomains that you have will be listed in the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which we provide with all of the accounts, so if you want our system to start generating logs for any 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 can disable this function anytime by following the very same steps. You can find a Download link for each and every log inside the exact same section of the Control Panel, so you could save the content generated by our system in .txt format with simply a mouse click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the feature has been disabled, so you'll still be able to view the data that's already been generated.
