An access log is a detailed list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a given website. Any file which was requested for some reason shall be listed, so if you have just one webpage with 3 embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for any of the six files that were accessed when the site visitor opened the page. A log usually offers the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s OS, Internet browser and IP address. Occasionally you could also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your site. The info 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 write reports on the overall performance of a website, in addition to the web statistics that your hosting server may have generated.

Access Log Manager in Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be really simple when you acquire a hosting from us. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all of the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs which is where you shall find the access logs as well. As you navigate 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 producing an access log for each of them the instant you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you no longer need logs, disabling the option is just as quick and can be done by clicking on the Off button within the same section. All the logs are downloadable, so you can comfortably save and manage them on your desktop computer or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our advanced hosting platform shall generate access logs for any website hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this feature is permitted. All domain names and subdomains that you have shall be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, that we provide with all of the accounts, so if you would like our system to start producing logs for each 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 deactivate this function whenever you want by following the same steps. You can find a Download link for each log in the very same section of the CP, so you can save the content generated by our system in .txt format with only a mouse click. An existing log file can be downloaded even after the option has been disabled, so you'll still be able to see the data that has already been generated.
