An access log is a thorough list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a particular site. Every file which was requested for whatever reason shall be listed, so if you have just one webpage with three embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the 6 files which were accessed when the website visitor opened the webpage. A log usually offers the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s OS, browser and IP address. In some cases you could also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The data an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to write reports on the overall performance of a website, in addition to the web stats your hosting server may have generated.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting
When you choose one of our cloud website hosting packages, you shall get in-depth 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 an extensive list of the domains and subdomains you have added or created in the hosting account. You'll simply have to click on the On button, that's found on the right-hand side of each and every hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs at once. To disable this feature, you will need to follow the very same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains could be handled independently and anytime. You will find a download link within the Logs section of the Control Panel for every log produced by our system, so that you can save the file to your desktop or notebook and view it or use it with some log processing software.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it will not take more than a few mouse clicks to trigger the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The feature could be enabled from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this can be done independently for each and every domain or subdomain which you have in your account. As soon as you log in and check out the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you'll find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each of them. One click will trigger the log generation and a second one will disable it, so you can control this feature with great convenience. A Download link in the same section will allow you to save the generated content as a text file, which you could then use on your notebook or computer. Whether or not the logs are disabled, you shall still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
