An access log is a complete list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a particular website. Each and every file which was requested for whatever reason shall be listed, so if you have only one webpage with three embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for any of the six files which were accessed when the website visitor opened the webpage. A log normally shows the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s Operating System, Internet browser and IP address. Sometimes you could also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your site. The data that an access log file includes 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 functionality of a website, aside from the web statistics your web hosting server may have created.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs will be really simple if you get a cloud web hosting from us. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, provided with all of the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs and this is where you shall find the access logs as well. As you go there, you'll see a list of all the domain names hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform shall start creating an access log for any of them as soon as you click on the On button, which you'll see on the right. If you don't need logs, disabling the option is just as easy and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button within the exact same section. All of the logs are downloadable, so you can comfortably save and manage them on your desktop computer or notebook.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall have the option to trigger or disable the generation of access logs with only several mouse clicks within your Hepsia hosting CP. You shall find this feature inside the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access as soon as you sign in. All it takes for our system to start creating logs is a single click on the On button that you can see there. The function can be triggered separately for any Internet site regardless of whether it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you'll find a detailed list of all the hosts in that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with just a click and you may then see it manually or use some software on your computer. The log generation may be stopped by simply changing the On option to Off in the Logs section of your CP.
