An access log is a thorough 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 shall be listed, so if you have just one page with 3 embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for each of the 6 files that were accessed when the website visitor opened the page. A log usually contains the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s Operating System, web browser and IP address. Sometimes you can also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your site. The info which an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a PC and used to write reports on the functionality of an Internet site, in addition to the web statistics that your web hosting server may have generated.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

If you acquire a cloud hosting from our company, you shall be able to decide if access logs have to be created and for which domains or subdomains in your account this should be done. You'll be able to activate this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, integrated with all shared accounts. Every domain you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can quickly activate or disable the generation of access logs individually for every single site that you have. You can save a log to your personal computer by clicking on the Download link that you'll see in the exact same section of the CP. The link shall be available even if you disable the log generation, so you will still have access to the data gathered by our system.

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 mouse clicks to permit the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The function can be activated through the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and this may be done separately for each and every domain or subdomain you have within your account. As soon as you log in and navigate to the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you will find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to every one of them. One click will enable the log generation and another one will deactivate it, so you can control this feature with great simplicity. A Download link within the same section will enable you to save the generated content as a text file, that you can then use on your notebook or computer. Even if the logs are deactivated, you will still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
