An access log is a thorough list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a given website. Every file which was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have a single page with three embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for any of the 6 files that were accessed when the site visitor opened the webpage. A log typically provides the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s OS, browser and IP address. Occasionally you may also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The info which an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to write reports on the overall performance of an Internet site, besides the web stats your web hosting server may have produced.
Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting
When you order a shared hosting from us, you will be able to decide if access logs must be generated and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You can enable this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all shared accounts. Every domain name you host or subdomain you set up will be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can conveniently activate or deactivate the generation of access logs individually for every site that you have. You can save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link that you'll see inside the same exact section of the CP. The link will be available even after you stop the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data collected by our system.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our leading-edge website hosting platform will create access logs for each and every site hosted within a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that 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, that we offer with all the accounts, so if you'd like our system to start creating logs for each of them, you should simply click on the compact button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You may stop this function at any time by following the exact same steps. You'll find a Download link for each and every log inside the exact same section of the CP, so you could save the content generated by our system in .txt format with only a mouse click. An existing log file could be downloaded even after the option has been disabled, so you'll still be able to see the data which has already been generated.
