An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a particular site. Any file that was requested for whatever reason shall be listed, so if you have a single webpage with three embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the 6 files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the page. A log typically provides the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s Operating System, web 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 can also be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to prepare reports on the overall performance of an Internet site, independent of the web stats which your hosting server may have created.
Access Log Manager in Website Hosting
If you acquire a website hosting from us, you'll be able to decide if access logs must be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You could activate this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, incorporated with all shared accounts. Every domain you host or subdomain you set up will be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can effortlessly enable or deactivate the generation of access logs separately for every single website that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link that you shall see in the very same section of the CP. The link will be available even after you stop the log generation, so you will still have access to the data compiled by our system.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it won't take more than a couple of clicks to permit the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The function may be permitted via the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this could be done individually for each domain or subdomain you have in your account. As soon as you log in and navigate to the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you'll discover a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each of them. A single click will trigger the log generation and a second one shall deactivate it, so you can control this function with great efficiency. A Download link in the same section will allow you to save the compiled content as a text file, which you may then use on your computer. Even if the logs are disabled, you shall still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
