An access log is a complete list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a certain website. Any file which was requested for whatever reason shall be listed, so if you have only one page with three embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for every of the 6 files that were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log usually shows the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s OS, browser and IP address. In some cases you could also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your website. The info that an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to write reports on the overall performance of a website, independent of the web statistics that your hosting server may have created.

Access Log Manager in Website Hosting

If you pick one of our website hosting packages, you shall get thorough access logs for all of your sites. As soon as you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a complete list of the domain names and subdomains that you've added or created inside the hosting account. You'll simply have to click on the On button, which is situated on the right-hand side of each hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs at once. To disable this feature, you'll have to follow the exact same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be handled individually and anytime. You'll find a download link within the Logs section of the CP for any log generated by our system, so that you can save the file to your personal computer and view it or use it through some log processing software.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our advanced hosting platform shall create access logs for every single website hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this function is enabled. All domain names and subdomains that you have shall be listed inside the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, that we offer with all of the accounts, so if you want our system to start generating logs for each of them, you should just click on the small button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You'll be able to disable this function whenever you want by following the same steps. You can find a Download link for every single log within the same exact section of the CP, so you can save the content generated by our system in .txt format with no more than a mouse click. An existing log file can be downloaded even after the option has been disabled, so you will still be able to look at the data that has already been generated.
