An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a certain site. Every single file which was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have a single page with three embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for every of the six files which were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log normally contains the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s OS, Internet browser and IP address. Sometimes you may also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your website. The data that an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to prepare reports on the overall performance of a website, besides the web statistics which your server may have created.
Access Log Manager in Shared Website Hosting
When you pick one of our shared website hosting plans, you shall get comprehensive access logs for all of your sites. As soon as you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you should check out the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a thorough list of the domains and subdomains which you have added or created inside the hosting account. You will only have to click on the On button, which is located on the right-hand side of each and every hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs straight away. To stop this function, you will have to follow the exact same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be managed separately and whenever you want. You can find a download link inside the Logs section of the CP for any log generated by our system, allowing you to save the file to your desktop or notebook and view it or use it through some log processing software.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it will not take more than a few clicks to permit the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The feature may be activated via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this may be done individually for every single domain or subdomain which you have inside your account. As soon as you log in and look at the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you'll see a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each one. A single click will activate the log generation and another one shall disable it, so you can control this function with great convenience. A Download link within the same section will enable you to save the generated content as a text file, which you can then use on your PC. Whether or not the logs are disabled, you will still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
