An access log is a thorough list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a certain Internet site. Every file that was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have one page with three embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the six files which were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log typically offers the file name and path, the date, along with 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 data that an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to prepare reports on the efficiency of an Internet site, besides the web stats that your web hosting server may have created.

Access Log Manager in Shared Web Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be really simple when you get a shared web hosting from us. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs and that is where you'll find the access logs as well. 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 cloud hosting platform will start generating an access log for each of them when you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you no longer need logs, disabling the option is just as quick and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button in the same section. All of the logs are downloadable, so you can comfortably save and manage them on your desktop PC or notebook.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it will not take more than a couple of clicks to trigger the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The feature could be enabled from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this can be done individually for each and every domain name or subdomain you have in your account. Once you log in and visit the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you will discover a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each of them. A single click will enable the log generation and another one will disable it, so you can control this function with great convenience. A Download link inside the same section will enable you to save the compiled content as a text file, which you can then use on your computer system. Even when the logs are disabled, you'll still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
