An access log is a complete list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a particular site. Any file which was requested for some reason shall be listed, so if you have a single webpage with 3 embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for any of the 6 files that were accessed when the site visitor opened the page. A log normally contains the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s OS, web browser and IP address. In some cases you can also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The information which an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a PC and used to write reports on the performance of a site, in addition to the web statistics which your hosting server may have created.
Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting
When you buy a shared hosting from us, you shall be able to choose if access logs have to be produced and for which domains or subdomains in your account this should be done. You could activate this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, integrated with all shared accounts. Any domain name you host or subdomain you create shall be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to each one of them, so you can conveniently trigger or disable the generation of access logs independently for each site that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your personal computer by clicking on the Download link that you shall see within the very same section of the CP. The link is available even if you stop the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data gathered by our system.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our leading-edge hosting platform shall generate access logs for any site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this feature is activated. All domain names and subdomains that you have will be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which we offer 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 little button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You may deactivate this function at any time by following the same steps. You will find a Download link for each log within the same exact section of the CP, so you could save the content gathered by our system in .txt format with only a click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the feature has been disabled, so you'll still be able to look at the data that's already been generated.
