An access log is a thorough list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a certain website. Any file that was requested for whatever reason shall be listed, so if you have one page with 3 embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for every of the six files which were accessed when the website visitor opened the webpage. A log normally offers the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s Operating System, Internet browser and IP address. Oftentimes you could also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The data which an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to write reports on the performance of an Internet site, independent of the web stats that your server may have generated.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs shall be incredibly easy when you acquire a cloud web hosting from us. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, provided with all of the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs and this is where you will find the access logs too. As you navigate 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 each of them the instant you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you no longer need logs, disabling the option is just as easy and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button inside the same section. All the logs are downloadable, so you can comfortably save and manage them on your desktop computer or laptop.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it shall not take more than a few mouse clicks to permit the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The feature could be enabled from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this could be done separately for every single domain or subdomain you have inside your account. As soon as you log in and look at the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you will find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each of them. One click shall enable the log generation and a second one shall deactivate it, so you can control this function with great efficiency. A Download link in the same section will allow you to save the created content as a text file, which you could then use on your personal computer. Even when the logs are disabled, you will still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
