An access log is a thorough list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a particular Internet site. Each and every file which was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have just one webpage with three embedded images, 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 6 files which were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log usually contains the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s OS, worldwide web browser and IP address. Oftentimes you can also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your site. The information which an access log file features is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a PC and used to prepare reports on the overall performance of a site, aside from the web stats that your server may have created.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting
If you choose one of our cloud web hosting plans, you shall get thorough access logs for your websites. After you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see a full list of the domains and subdomains you have added or created in the web hosting account. You will only have to click on the On button, which is located on the right-hand side of each hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs straight away. To disable this feature, you'll have to follow the very same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be managed individually and whenever you want. You'll find a download link within the Logs section of the Control Panel for any log produced by our system, allowing you to save the file to your personal computer and view it or use it via 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 mouse clicks to enable the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The feature could be permitted through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this could be done individually for each and every domain or subdomain that you have in your account. Once you log in and look at the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you'll see a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each of them. A single click shall activate the log generation and a second one shall disable it, so you can control this feature with great ease. A Download link inside the same section will permit you to save the created content as a text file, which you can then use on your computer. Even if the logs are disabled, you will still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
