An access log is a detailed list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a given site. Any file which was requested in some way shall be listed, so if you have just one page with 3 embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for every of the six files that were accessed when the site visitor opened the page. A log usually shows the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s Operating System, worldwide web browser and IP address. Occasionally you could also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your website. The information that an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to write reports on the performance of an Internet site, in addition to the web statistics which your hosting server may have created.
Access Log Manager in Shared Website Hosting
When you obtain a shared website hosting from our company, you will be able to choose if access logs have to be created and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You'll be able to activate this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all shared accounts. Any domain you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to each of them, so you can easily enable or deactivate the generation of access logs independently for every single website that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your personal computer by clicking on the Download link you'll see within the exact same section of the Control Panel. The link shall be available even if you stop the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data collected by our system.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our state-of-the-art hosting platform shall create access logs for any site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, provided that this function is permitted. All domains and subdomains that you have will be listed inside the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which we offer with all of the accounts, so if you'd like our system to start creating logs for any 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 can disable this function anytime by following the exact same steps. You'll find a Download link for each log in the exact same section of the Control Panel, so you could save the content gathered by our system in .txt format with no more than a mouse click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the option has been deactivated, so you'll still be able to view the data that has already been generated.
