An access log is a detailed list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a particular site. Every single file which was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have only one webpage with 3 embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for every of the 6 files that were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log normally offers the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s Operating System, worldwide web browser and IP address. In some cases you could also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The info which an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to prepare reports on the functionality of an Internet site, in addition to the web stats which your hosting server may have generated.

Access Log Manager in Shared Web Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be really simple if you get a shared web hosting from our company. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs and that is where you will find the access logs as well. When you navigate there, you'll see a list of all the domain names hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform will start producing an access log for any of them the instant 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 fast and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button inside the same section. All the logs are downloadable, so you can conveniently save and manage them on your desktop computer or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our advanced web hosting platform will create access logs for every single website hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this feature is enabled. All domain names and subdomains that you have will be listed in the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which we provide with all of the accounts, so if you'd like our system to start generating logs for any of them, you should just click on the small button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You could deactivate this feature whenever you want by following the exact same steps. You'll find a Download link for every single log within the exact same section of the CP, so you may save the content gathered by our system in .txt format with just a click. An existing log file can be downloaded even after the function has been disabled, so you will still be able to look at the data that's already been generated.
