An access log is a complete list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a particular website. Every single file that was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have a single webpage with 3 embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the six files that were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log typically provides the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s Operating System, web browser and IP address. Occasionally you may also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your site. The data which an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to write reports on the functionality of a website, besides the web stats that your server may have generated.
Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting
When you get a shared hosting from us, you shall be able to determine if access logs should be generated and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You may activate this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts. Each and every domain you host or subdomain you set up shall be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each one of them, so you can effortlessly activate or disable the generation of access logs independently for each website that you have. You could save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link that you shall see within the same section of the Control Panel. The link shall be available even after you stop the log generation, so you will still have access to the data gathered by our system.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to view detailed access logs for any website that you host within a semi-dedicated server account created on our groundbreaking web hosting platform. Our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting CP will permit you to activate the function for each domain or subdomain in the account independently, which means that you can get logs exclusively for the sites you need. Once you sign in, you can navigate to the Access/Error Logs section where you will find a list of all the domains and subdomains that you have added or created and an On/Off button on the right side of every one of them. Initiating or disabling the generation of access logs is as simple as pressing that button and the change will take effect at once. You can save the logs in .txt format by clicking on the Download link in the same section. The latter shall be available all of the time, even if you disable the function for a specific domain or subdomain.
