An access log is a thorough list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a certain site. Every single file that was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have just one page with three embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the six files which were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. 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 could also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your site. The information that an access log file features is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to write reports on the functionality of a site, independent of the web statistics that your server may have created.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be extremely easy if you get a cloud website hosting from our company. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all the accounts, features a section on different logs and that is where you will find the access logs as well. As you go there, you shall see a list of all the domains hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform will start producing an access log for each of them the instant you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you don't need logs, disabling the option is just as fast and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button in the exact same section. All the logs are downloadable, therefore you can easily save and manage them on your PC or notebook.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our advanced website hosting platform shall create access logs for each website hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, provided that this function is activated. All domains and subdomains that you have shall be listed inside the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, that we supply with all of the accounts, so if you'd like our system to start generating logs for each of them, you should just click on the small button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You could disable this function anytime by following the same steps. You will find a Download link for each log within the very same section of the CP, so you can easily save the content produced by our system in .txt format with only a mouse click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the feature has been deactivated, so you'll still be able to check out the data which has already been generated.
