An access log is a complete list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a particular website. Each and every file which was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have a single page with three embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for every of the 6 files that were accessed when the website visitor opened the page. A log usually offers the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s Operating System, web browser and IP address. Oftentimes you may also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The data an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a PC and used to write reports on the overall performance of a site, in addition to the web stats your web hosting server may have generated.
Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting
When you purchase a shared hosting from us, you shall be able to choose if access logs must be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You may activate this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, integrated with all shared accounts. Every single domain name you host or subdomain you set up will be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each of them, so you can easily activate or disable the generation of access logs independently for each website 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 exact same section of the Control Panel. The link is available even if you deactivate the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data compiled by our system.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it will not take more than a few mouse clicks to enable the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The function could be activated from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this could be done independently for each domain name or subdomain you have in your account. When you log in and check out the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you'll see a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each one. A single click shall activate the log generation and a second one will deactivate it, so you can control this feature with great simplicity. A Download link within the same section will enable you to save the generated content as a text file, that you can then use on your personal computer. Even if the logs are disabled, you'll still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
