An access log is a detailed list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a given Internet site. Every file that was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have a single page with 3 embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for any of the six files that were accessed when the website visitor opened the webpage. A log normally shows the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s Operating System, Internet browser and IP address. Oftentimes you could also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your site. The information which an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to prepare reports on the performance of an Internet site, aside from the web stats which your server may have created.

Access Log Manager in Shared Web Hosting

When you choose one of our shared web hosting packages, you will get comprehensive access logs for all your sites. After you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you can check out the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see a thorough list of the domain names and subdomains that you have added or created inside the hosting account. You'll only have to click on the On button, which is located on the right-hand side of each and every hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs immediately. To disable this feature, you will need to follow the same exact steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be handled independently and at any time. You'll find a download link in the Logs section of the CP for every log created by our system, so that you can save the file to your PC and view it or use it through some log processing software.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it will not take more than a few clicks to activate the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The feature could be activated through the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and this could be done individually for each and every domain name or subdomain that you have in your account. Whenever you log in and go to the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you'll discover a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each of them. One click will trigger the log generation and another one shall disable it, so you can control this feature with great simplicity. A Download link within the same section will enable you to save the compiled content as a text file, which you can then use on your PC. Even when the logs are deactivated, you will still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
