An access log is a complete list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a certain Internet site. Each and every file which was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have a single page with 3 embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for any of the 6 files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the webpage. A log usually shows the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s OS, Internet browser and IP address. In some cases you could also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your website. The info which an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a PC and used to prepare reports on the functionality of a website, besides the web stats that your server may have generated.
Access Log Manager in Shared Website Hosting
If you choose one of our shared website hosting solutions, you'll get in-depth access logs for your sites. As soon as you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a thorough list of the domain names and subdomains you have added or created within 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 need to follow the exact same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be managed independently and at any time. You can find a download link inside the Logs section of the CP for any log generated by our system, so that you can save the file to your laptop or computer and view it or use it via some log processing software.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it won't take more than several mouse clicks to trigger the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The function could be activated via the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and this could be done separately for each domain name or subdomain which you have in your account. After you log in and go to the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you'll find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each of them. One click shall enable the log generation and another one shall disable it, so you can control this function with great simplicity. A Download link inside the same section will permit you to save the compiled content as a text file, which you can then use on your computer system. Even when the logs are disabled, you shall still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
