An access log is a complete list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a certain Internet site. Each and every file which was requested in some way shall be listed, so if you have a single webpage with three embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log shall 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 normally contains the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s OS, web browser and IP address. Occasionally you may also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your Internet 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 personal computer and used to prepare reports on the efficiency of a site, aside from the web stats your hosting server may have generated.
Access Log Manager in Hosting
When you buy a hosting from our company, you shall be able to decide if access logs should be produced and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You can enable this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, included with all shared accounts. Each and every domain you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each of them, so you can easily trigger or disable the generation of access logs independently for each site that you have. You could save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link that you'll see in the exact same section of the CP. The link will be available even if you deactivate the log generation, so you will still have access to the data gathered by our system.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall have the option to trigger or disable the generation of access logs with only a few clicks from your Hepsia hosting CP. You'll find this feature in the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access after you sign in. All it takes for our system to start creating logs is one click on the On button which you can see there. The feature can be activated separately for any Internet site no matter if it uses a domain or a subdomain and you will find a detailed list of all the hosts in that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with a click and you could then see it manually or use some software on your personal computer. The log generation can be disabled by simply changing the On option to Off in the Logs section of your CP.
