An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a certain website. Each and every file that was requested for some reason shall be listed, so if you have just one webpage with three embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the 6 files which were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log typically contains the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s OS, worldwide web browser and IP address. Oftentimes you can also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your website. The information an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a PC and used to prepare reports on the efficiency of a website, in addition to the web stats which your server may have generated.

Access Log Manager in Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be very easy when you get a hosting from us. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which comes with all of the accounts, features a section on different logs which is where you shall find the access logs too. As soon as you go there, you shall see a list of all the domain names hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform will start generating 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 simple and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button in the very same section. All of the logs are downloadable, so you can effortlessly save and manage them on your desktop PC or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our advanced web hosting platform shall create access logs for every single Internet site hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this feature is enabled. All domain names and subdomains that you have will be listed inside the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which we provide with all of the accounts, so if you need our system to start generating logs for any of them, you should just click on the compact button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You could disable this feature at any time by following exactly the same steps. You'll find a Download link for each and every log in the exact same section of the Control Panel, so you will be able to save the content generated by our system in .txt format with simply a click. An existing log file could be downloaded even after the function has been deactivated, so you will still be able to see the data that has already been generated.
