An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a given Internet site. Every single file that was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have only one page with three embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for each of the 6 files which were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log usually shows the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s Operating System, browser and IP address. Oftentimes you can also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The info that an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to write reports on the overall performance of a site, besides the web stats that your hosting server may have generated.

Access Log Manager in Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be very simple when you get a hosting from us. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which comes with all the accounts, features a section dedicated to different logs which is where you shall find the access logs too. When you navigate there, you shall see a list of all the domains hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform shall start generating an access log for any of them as soon as you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you don't require logs, disabling the option is just as quick and can be done by clicking on the Off button in the same section. All of the logs are downloadable, which means that you can conveniently save and manage them on your PC or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our state-of-the-art hosting platform will generate access logs for every Internet site hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as long as this function is permitted. All domains and subdomains that you have will be listed in the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which we offer with all of the accounts, so if you want our system to start producing logs for each of them, you should simply click on the compact button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You'll be able to disable this feature anytime by following the same steps. You will find a Download link for every single log within the same section of the CP, so you may save the content gathered by our system in .txt format with no more than a click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the feature has been deactivated, so you will still be able to check out the data that has already been generated.
