An access log is a detailed list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a certain site. Each and every file that was requested in some way shall be listed, so if you have just one page with 3 embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, 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 webpage. A log typically provides the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s OS, Internet browser and IP address. Occasionally you can also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The data that 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 write reports on the functionality of an Internet site, in addition to the web statistics which your web hosting server may have generated.
Access Log Manager in Website Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs shall be exceptionally simple if you acquire a website hosting
from our company. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, supplied with all of the accounts, features a section dedicated to different logs and that is where you will find the access logs too. Once you navigate there, you shall see a list of all the domains
hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform will start generating an access log for each of them when you click on the On button, which you'll see on the right. If you don't require logs, disabling the option is just as fast and can be done by clicking on the Off button in the same exact section. All of the logs are downloadable, so you can conveniently save and manage them on your PC or notebook.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to see in depth access logs for any site that you host in a semi-dedicated server
account set up on our progressive hosting platform. Our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting CP will permit you to activate the feature for each and every domain or subdomain in the account individually, so that you can get logs exclusively for the sites you need. After you sign in, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see a list of all the domain addresses and subdomains which you have added or created and an On/Off button on the right side of each one of them. Initiating or deactivating the generation of access logs is as easy as pressing that button and the change shall take effect immediately. You could save the logs in .txt format by clicking on the Download link situated in the exact same section. The latter shall be available at all times, even after you disable the feature for a specific domain name or subdomain.
