An access log is a thorough list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a given website. Every file that was requested for some reason shall be listed, so if you have a single webpage with 3 embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the 6 files that were accessed when the website visitor opened the page. A log normally contains the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s Operating System, Internet browser and IP address. In some cases you can also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The information which 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 performance of an Internet site, aside from the web stats that your web hosting server may have created.

Access Log Manager in Shared Web Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be very easy when you purchase a shared web hosting from us. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, supplied with all of the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs and that is where you'll find the access logs too. When you go there, you'll see a list of all the domain names hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform shall start creating an access log for each of them the instant you click on the On button, that you will see on the right. If you don't need logs, disabling the option is just as fast and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button inside the very same section. All of the logs are downloadable, so you can conveniently save and manage them on your desktop computer or notebook.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it won't take more than a few mouse clicks to enable the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The function may be enabled via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this could be done individually for each domain name or subdomain which you have within your account. When you log in and look at the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you will discover a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to every one of them. A single click shall enable the log generation and a second one will deactivate it, so you can control this function with great comfort. A Download link in the same section will allow you to save the compiled content as a text file, which you can then use on your computer system. Even when the logs are disabled, you shall still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
