An access log is a complete list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a given website. Every file that was requested in some way shall be listed, so if you have a single webpage with three embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the 6 files which were accessed when the website visitor opened the page. A log usually offers the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s OS, worldwide web browser and IP address. Occasionally you could also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your site. The data an access log file provides 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 efficiency of a site, aside from the web stats that your server may have generated.

Access Log Manager in Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be very easy if you get a hosting from our company. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, supplied with all of the accounts, features a section on different logs and this is where you will find the access logs too. When you go there, you'll see a list of all the domain names hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform shall start producing an access log for each of them as soon as you click on the On button, which you'll see on the right. If you don't require logs, disabling the option is just as simple and can be done by clicking on the Off button in the same section. All of the logs are downloadable, therefore you can conveniently save and manage them on your desktop PC or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it will not take more than several clicks to permit the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The function can be activated through the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this can be done independently for every single domain name or subdomain that you have in your account. When you log in and look at the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you will find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each one. A single click shall enable the log generation and another one will deactivate it, so you can control this feature with great efficiency. A Download link inside the same section will allow you to save the compiled content as a text file, that you may then use on your notebook or computer. Even when the logs are disabled, you shall still be able to download the data that has been previously generated.
