An access log is a detailed list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a certain website. Every single file which was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have a single webpage with three embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, as an 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 normally shows the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s Operating System, browser and IP address. Oftentimes you could also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your site. The data an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to write reports on the performance of a website, besides the web stats which your web hosting server may have generated.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting
When you choose one of our cloud website hosting packages, you'll get thorough access logs for your sites. Once you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see a full list of the domain names and subdomains you have added or created within the web hosting account. You'll simply have to click on the On button, that is situated on the right-hand side of each and every hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs at once. To disable this function, you will need to follow the same exact steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be handled separately and at any time. You'll find a download link within the Logs section of the CP for any log generated by our system, so you can save the file to your desktop or notebook and view it or use it via some log processing software.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our advanced hosting platform shall generate access logs for each and every site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, as long as this feature is enabled. All domain names and subdomains that you have shall be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which we provide with all the accounts, so if you want 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 can deactivate this function at any time by following the very same steps. You will find a Download link for each log within the same exact section of the Control Panel, so you could save the content produced by our system in .txt format with no more than a mouse click. An existing log file can be downloaded even after the feature has been deactivated, so you will still be able to view the data that's already been generated.
