An access log is a thorough list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a certain site. Each and every file which was requested in some way shall be listed, so if you have just one page with 3 embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log will 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, along with the visitor’s OS, browser and IP address. Sometimes you could also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The information which an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a PC and used to prepare reports on the efficiency of a site, in addition to the web stats which your hosting server may have generated.
Access Log Manager in Shared Web Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs will be extremely simple if you purchase a shared web hosting
from our company. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, supplied with all the accounts, features a section dedicated to different logs and this is where you shall find the access logs as well. As you go there, you shall see a list of all the domains
hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform shall start creating an access log for any of them the instant you click on the On button, that you will see on the right. If you don't need logs, disabling the option is just as quick and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button in the same section. All the logs are downloadable, which means that you can comfortably save and manage them on your desktop PC or notebook.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our advanced website hosting platform will generate access logs for each and every website hosted within a semi-dedicated server
account, assuming that this function is activated. All domains and subdomains that you have will be listed inside the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, that we provide with all of the accounts, so if you want our system to start creating logs for any of them, you should just click on the compact button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You can disable this function whenever you want by following the same steps. You can find a Download link for each and every log inside the same section of the Control Panel, so you can easily save the content generated by our system in .txt format with no more than a mouse click. An existing log file could be downloaded even after the feature has been disabled, so you'll still be able to see the data which has already been generated.
