An access log is a detailed list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a given site. Any file that was requested for whatever reason shall be listed, so if you have a single page with 3 embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the six files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the webpage. A log normally shows the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s OS, Internet browser and IP address. Occasionally you may also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your website. The data 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, in addition to the web stats which your server may have generated.

Access Log Manager in Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be exceptionally simple when you purchase a hosting from our company. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which comes with all the accounts, has a section on different logs and this is where you will find the access logs too. As you navigate there, you'll see a list of all the domains hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform will start creating an access log for each of them as soon as you click on the On button, which you'll see on the right. If you no longer need logs, disabling the option is just as simple and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button in the very same section. All the logs are downloadable, therefore you can comfortably save and manage them on your desktop computer or notebook.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it won't take more than a few clicks to permit the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The function could be activated through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this could be done separately for each and every domain or subdomain which you have within your account. Whenever you log in and go to the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you'll discover a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each one. A single click will enable the log generation and a second one will deactivate it, so you can control this function with great convenience. A Download link in the same section will permit you to save the compiled content as a text file, that you can then use on your computer. Whether or not the logs are deactivated, you will still be able to download the data that has been previously generated.
