An access log is a thorough list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a particular website. Each and every file that was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have only one page with three embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for any of the six files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the webpage. A log usually offers the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s OS, Internet browser and IP address. Occasionally you may also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The data that an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to write reports on the performance of a website, in addition to the web statistics which your web hosting server may have generated.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting
Our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel features a section dedicated to various logs and the access logs are one of them. As soon as you sign in to your cloud web hosting account and take a look at this section, you will find a list of all the domains and subdomains that you have. All it takes to enable the generation of access logs is to click on a button that will be available next to every single domain/subdomain. If the option is enabled, you shall see a download link along with the file size so far, so you shall be able to save the file to your personal computer and examine it or process it with some app. Enabling or disabling the logs takes effect immediately, so if you no longer need one, you may stop it with just a mouse click from the very same section of the CP. You'll still be able to access the already developed content by clicking on the Download link.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our advanced hosting platform shall create access logs for each website hosted within a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this feature is permitted. All domains and subdomains that you have will be listed in the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which we offer with all the accounts, so if you need our system to start producing logs for each of them, you should just click on the compact button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You could disable this feature whenever you want by following the very same steps. You'll find a Download link for each and every log in the exact same section of the Control Panel, so you may save the content generated by our system in .txt format with only a mouse click. An existing log file can be downloaded even after the function has been disabled, so you'll still be able to view the data that has already been generated.
