An access log is a detailed list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a certain site. Every single file that was requested for some reason shall be listed, so if you have one page with 3 embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the six files that were accessed when the site visitor opened the page. A log normally offers the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s OS, web browser and IP address. In some cases you may also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your website. The information which an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a PC and used to prepare reports on the overall performance of a website, besides the web stats which your server may have created.

Access Log Manager in Website Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be exceptionally simple when you get a website hosting from us. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, supplied with all the accounts, features a section dedicated to different logs and this is where you'll find the access logs too. As soon as you navigate there, you'll see a list of all the domains hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized 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 fast and can be done by clicking on the Off button inside the very same section. All the logs are downloadable, so you can conveniently save and manage them on your PC or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your Internet sites inside a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will have the option to activate or deactivate the generation of access logs with just several mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

All it takes for our system to start creating logs is one click on the On button you'll see there. The feature can be triggered independently for any Internet site no matter if it uses a domain or a subdomain and you'll find the complete list of all the hosts in that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with just a click and you may then see it manually or use some software on your computer. The log generation can be disabled by simply switching the On option to Off within the Logs section of your CP.
