An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a certain website. Each and every file which was requested for whatever reason shall be listed, so if you have only one webpage with three embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for any of the 6 files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the page. A log normally offers the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s Operating System, Internet browser and IP address. Oftentimes you could also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The information which an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to prepare reports on the efficiency of an Internet site, in addition to the web statistics your web hosting server may have created.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be extremely easy if you get a shared hosting from us. The Hepsia web 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 as well. As 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 made cloud hosting platform shall start producing an access log for each of them as early as you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you no longer require logs, disabling the option is just as easy and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button inside the same section. All the logs are downloadable, so you can easily save and manage them on your PC or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it shall not take more than a couple of mouse clicks to permit the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The feature may be enabled via the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this could be done separately for every single domain name or subdomain that you have inside your account. Whenever you log in and go to the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you will discover a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each of them. A single click shall trigger the log generation and another one will deactivate it, so you can control this function with great ease. A Download link inside the same section will enable you to save the created content as a text file, that you may then use on your laptop or computer. Even when the logs are disabled, you'll still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
