An access log is a thorough list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a given website. Every single file which was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have only one page with 3 embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for every of the 6 files that were accessed when the website visitor opened the page. A log usually provides the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s OS, Internet browser and IP address. Oftentimes you can also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The info an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a PC and used to write reports on the efficiency of a website, independent of the web statistics your hosting server may have produced.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting
If you purchase a cloud hosting
from our company, you'll be able to determine if access logs should be created and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You can enable this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts. Each domain
you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can easily activate or deactivate the generation of access logs separately for each website that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link that you will see within the very same section of the Control Panel. The link is available even after you stop the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data gathered by our system.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our sophisticated web hosting platform shall generate access logs for every website hosted inside a semi-dedicated server
account, provided that this feature is permitted. All domains and subdomains that you have will be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which we offer with all of the accounts, so if you need our system to start producing logs for any of them, you should just click on the small button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You could disable this function at any time by following the exact same steps. You can find a Download link for each and every log inside the same section of the Control Panel, so you can save the content generated by our system in .txt format with just a mouse click. An existing log file can be downloaded even after the function has been disabled, so you will still be able to view the data which has already been generated.
