An access log is a complete list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a given Internet site. Every file which was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have only one webpage with three embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for any of the 6 files that were accessed when the site visitor opened the webpage. A log normally offers the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s Operating System, browser and IP address. In some cases you can also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your site. The info that an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to prepare reports on the performance of a site, besides the web stats that your web hosting server may have generated.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting
When you choose one of our cloud web hosting plans, you will receive in-depth access logs for all your sites. Once you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should check out the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a complete list of the domain names and subdomains you have added or created within the hosting account. You will simply need to click on the On button, that's located on the right-hand side of each hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs straight away. To disable this function, you will need to follow the very same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be managed independently and at any time. You'll find a download link in the Logs section of the Control Panel for any log produced by our system, so you can 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
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it won't take more than a few mouse clicks to permit 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 may be done separately for each domain name or subdomain you have in your account. As soon as you log in and check out the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you will find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to every one of them. One click will enable the log generation and a second one will deactivate it, so you can control this function with great simplicity. A Download link inside the same section will enable you to save the compiled content as a text file, that you may then use on your computer. Whether or not the logs are disabled, you'll still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
