An access log is a complete list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a given site. Each and every file that was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have just one page with three embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for any of the six files which were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log normally contains the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s OS, web browser and IP address. Occasionally you can also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your site. The info that an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to prepare reports on the performance of an Internet site, in addition to the web statistics that your hosting server may have created.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be extremely easy if you purchase a shared hosting from us. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which comes with all the accounts, has a section on different logs and that is where you shall find the access logs too. When you navigate there, you shall see a list of all the domain names hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform shall start generating an access log for any of them the instant 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 simple and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button inside the exact same section. All of the logs are downloadable, therefore you can easily save and manage them on your desktop computer or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it shall not take more than a couple of mouse clicks to permit the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The feature can be activated from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this may be done separately for each domain name or subdomain that you have within your account. As soon as you log in and go to the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you will see a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each of them. One click will activate the log generation and a second one shall deactivate it, so you can control this function with great comfort. A Download link in the same section will enable you to save the generated content as a text file, which you can then use on your notebook or computer. Whether or not the logs are disabled, you shall still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
