An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a particular Internet site. Any file which was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have just one page with three embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the six files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the webpage. A log typically contains the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s OS, web browser and IP address. Sometimes you could also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your site. The data which an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to write reports on the performance of a website, independent of the web statistics that your web hosting server may have generated.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs shall be extremely easy when you acquire a cloud hosting from our company. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, included with all of the accounts, has a section on different logs and this is where you shall find the access logs as well. Once you go there, you shall see a list of all the domain names hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform will start generating an access log for any of them as early as you click on the On button, which you'll see on the right. If you no longer need logs, disabling the option is just as fast and can be done by clicking on the Off button in the same exact section. All the logs are downloadable, which means that you can easily save and manage them on your desktop PC or laptop.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will have the option to activate or disable the generation of access logs with just several mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting CP. You will find this function in the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access when you sign in. All it takes for our system to start generating logs is a click on the On button that you can see there. The function can be enabled separately for any Internet site regardless if it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you'll find the full list of all the hosts in that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with simply a click and you may then look at it manually or use some software on your computer. The log generation could be deactivated by simply switching the On option to Off in the Logs section of your Control Panel.
