An access log is a complete list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a particular site. Any file which was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have just one page with 3 embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the six files which were accessed when the website visitor opened the page. A log typically offers the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s OS, browser and IP address. In some cases you can also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your website. The info an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to prepare reports on the overall performance of an Internet site, aside from the web statistics that your server may have generated.
Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting
When you acquire a shared hosting from our company, you'll be able to determine if access logs must be generated and for which domains or subdomains in your account this should be done. You'll be able to enable this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, incorporated with all shared accounts. Each domain you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to every one of them, so you can easily trigger or deactivate the generation of access logs individually for each site that you have. You may save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link that you shall see within the same exact section of the Control Panel. The link shall be available even after you stop the log generation, so you will still have access to the data gathered by our system.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our leading-edge web hosting platform will create access logs for each and every site hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this function is enabled. All domains and subdomains that you have shall be listed inside the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which we offer with all of the accounts, so if you need our system to start creating logs for each of them, you should simply click on the small button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You can deactivate this function whenever you want by following the exact same steps. You'll find a Download link for every single log inside the same section of the Control Panel, so you could save the content produced by our system in .txt format with only a mouse click. An existing log file could be downloaded even after the option has been deactivated, so you'll still be able to see the data which has already been generated.
