An access log is a detailed list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a given site. Every file that was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have one webpage with three embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for any of the six files that were accessed when the site visitor opened the page. A log usually contains the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s OS, Internet browser and IP address. In some cases you may 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 can be processed by special software on a PC and used to prepare reports on the efficiency of an Internet site, aside from the web statistics which your web hosting server may have generated.

Access Log Manager in Web Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be very simple if you get a web hosting from our company. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, included with all the accounts, features a section on different logs and that is where you will find the access logs as well. When you navigate there, you will see a list of all the domains hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform shall start creating an access log for any of them as soon as you click on the On button, that you will see on the right. If you no longer need logs, disabling the option is just as fast and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button in the very same section. All the logs are downloadable, which means that you can conveniently save and manage them on your PC or notebook.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our sophisticated web hosting platform shall generate access logs for every single site hosted within a semi-dedicated server account, provided that this feature is activated. All domains and subdomains that you have will be listed inside the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which we offer with all of the accounts, so if you would like our system to start generating logs for any of them, you should simply click on the compact button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You may disable this function anytime by following the exact same steps. You can find a Download link for each log in the same exact section of the Control Panel, so you will be able to save the content produced by our system in .txt format with no more than a mouse click. An existing log file can be downloaded even after the feature has been deactivated, so you will still be able to view the data that has already been generated.
