An access log is a thorough list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a given Internet site. Each and every file that was requested for whatever reason shall be listed, so if you have only one page with three embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the six files that were accessed when the website visitor opened the page. A log usually provides the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s Operating System, worldwide web browser and IP address. Occasionally you can also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The info that an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a PC and used to prepare reports on the overall performance of a site, independent of the web stats which your web hosting server may have generated.

Access Log Manager in Shared Web Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be incredibly easy if you get a shared web hosting from us. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, included with all of the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs and that is where you shall find the access logs too. As you go there, you shall see a list of all the domain names hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform shall start creating an access log for each of them as early as you click on the On button, that you will see on the right. If you don't require logs, disabling the option is just as quick and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button in the same exact section. All the logs are downloadable, therefore you can conveniently save and manage them on your desktop computer or notebook.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our advanced website hosting platform will generate access logs for each and every Internet site hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as long as this feature is activated. All domain names and subdomains that you have shall be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which we provide with all the accounts, so if you would 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 switch the default Off option to On. You'll be able to deactivate this feature whenever you want by following the exact same steps. You'll find a Download link for every single log within the very same section of the CP, so you can save the content produced by our system in .txt format with simply a click. An existing log file could be downloaded even after the option has been deactivated, so you'll still be able to look at the data which has already been generated.
