An access log is a detailed list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a particular website. Every single file which was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have a single page with 3 embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for any of the 6 files that were accessed when the website visitor opened the page. A log typically contains the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s Operating System, Internet browser and IP address. Oftentimes you may also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The info 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 prepare reports on the overall performance of an Internet site, aside from the web stats that your server may have created.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs will be really easy if you purchase a cloud website hosting from our company. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which comes with all the accounts, features a section on different logs which is where you will find the access logs as well. Once you go there, you will see a list of all the domain names hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform shall start generating an access log for each of them when you click on the On button, which you'll see on the right. If you no longer require logs, disabling the option is just as easy and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button within the same exact section. All the logs are downloadable, which means that you can effortlessly save and manage them on your desktop PC or laptop.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your Internet sites within a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will have the option to activate or deactivate the generation of access logs with just a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia hosting CP. You shall find this function in the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access once you sign in. All it takes for our system to start creating logs is one click on the On button that you will see there. The function can be enabled separately for any Internet site regardless if it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you will find a full list of all the hosts in that section.
