An access log is a thorough list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a certain website. Every file which was requested in some way shall be listed, so if you have a single webpage with three embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for each of the six files which were accessed when the site 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. Sometimes you could also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The info which an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a PC and used to write reports on the efficiency of an Internet site, in addition to the web statistics your hosting server may have generated.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting

If you purchase a cloud web hosting from us, you shall be able to choose if access logs should be generated and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You could activate this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, integrated with all shared accounts. Every domain name you host or subdomain you set up will be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each one of them, so you can easily enable or disable the generation of access logs independently for every site that you have. You could save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link that you will see inside the same exact section of the CP. The link is available even after you disable the log generation, so you will still have access to the data compiled by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our leading-edge web hosting platform will create access logs for each Internet site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, provided that this feature is permitted. All domain names and subdomains that you have shall be listed in the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, that 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 may stop this function anytime by following the same steps. You'll find a Download link for every single log inside the same section of the Control Panel, so you can save the content gathered by our system in .txt format with only a mouse click. An existing log file can be downloaded even after the function has been disabled, so you will still be able to see the data that has already been generated.
