An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a particular Internet site. Every single file which was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have a single page 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 any of the six files which were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log normally provides the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s OS, Internet browser and IP address. Oftentimes you can also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The information which an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to prepare reports on the efficiency of a site, independent of the web statistics your server may have generated.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs will be exceptionally easy when you purchase a cloud hosting from us. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, included with all the accounts, features a section dedicated to different logs and this is where you will find the access logs too. Once you navigate there, you will see a list of all the domains hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform shall 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 quick and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button in the same exact 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 Hosting
Our advanced web hosting platform will create access logs for each and every site hosted within a semi-dedicated server account, as long as this feature is activated. All domains and subdomains that you have shall be listed in the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which we supply with all the accounts, so if you'd like our system to start creating logs for each of them, you should just click on the small button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You'll be able to disable this feature at any time by following the same steps. You will find a Download link for every single log within the same section of the CP, so you can save the content gathered by our system in .txt format with just a click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the function has been disabled, so you will still be able to check out the data that's already been generated.
