An access log is a thorough list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a given Internet site. Any file that was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have a single webpage with three embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the six files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the webpage. A log normally offers the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s OS, web browser and IP address. In some cases you may also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your website. The information which an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to prepare reports on the overall performance of a site, aside from the web stats which your web hosting server may have created.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be incredibly simple if you buy a cloud hosting from us. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which comes with all the accounts, features a section on different logs which is where you shall find the access logs too. As soon as 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 made cloud hosting platform shall start creating an access log for each of them the instant you click on the On button, which you'll see on the right. If you don't need logs, disabling the option is just as fast and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button in the same section. All of the logs are downloadable, so you can conveniently save and manage them on your desktop computer or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our leading-edge web hosting platform will create access logs for each site hosted within a semi-dedicated server account, provided that this function is permitted. All domain names and subdomains that you have will be listed in the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, that we provide with all the accounts, so if you want our system to start creating logs for any of them, you should just click on the little button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You could disable this feature whenever you want by following the very same steps. You can find a Download link for each and every log within the very same section of the Control Panel, so you could save the content gathered by our system in .txt format with no more than a mouse click. An existing log file could be downloaded even after the option has been disabled, so you will still be able to see the data that has already been generated.
