An access log is a detailed list of all the files which 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 a single webpage with three embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, 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, in addition to the visitor’s Operating System, web browser and IP address. In some cases you may also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your site. The information an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to write reports on the efficiency of an Internet site, aside from the web statistics that your hosting server may have produced.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting

If you obtain a cloud web hosting from us, you'll be able to determine if access logs have to be generated and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You could activate this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, incorporated with all shared accounts. Each and every domain name you host or subdomain you create shall be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to each one of them, so you can effortlessly trigger or deactivate the generation of access logs individually for every single website that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link that you shall see inside the very same section of the CP. The link is available even if you stop the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data collected by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our advanced hosting platform will create access logs for every single Internet site hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, provided that this feature is activated. All domain names and subdomains that you have shall be listed in the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, that we supply with all of the accounts, so if you want our system to start generating logs for any of them, you should simply click on the little button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You may stop this function whenever you want by following exactly the same steps. You'll find a Download link for each log inside the same exact section of the CP, so you could save the content generated by our system in .txt format with just a click. An existing log file could be downloaded even after the feature has been disabled, so you will still be able to look at the data that's already been generated.
