An access log is a complete list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a particular site. Each and every file that was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have a single webpage with three embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for any of the six files that were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log usually provides the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s Operating System, worldwide web browser and IP address. Oftentimes you may also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your site. The data which an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to prepare reports on the functionality of a site, besides the web stats that your hosting server may have produced.

Access Log Manager in Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be very simple if you buy a hosting from us. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, supplied with all the accounts, features a section on different logs which is where you shall find the access logs as well. Once you go there, you shall 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 generating an access log for each of them as soon as you click on the On button, that you will see on the right. If you don't require logs, disabling the option is just as easy and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button within the exact same section. All of the logs are downloadable, which means that you can comfortably save and manage them on your desktop computer or notebook.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it won't take more than a few clicks to trigger the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The function can be permitted through the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and this may be done separately for each and every domain or subdomain that you have inside your account. Once you log in and look at the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you'll find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each one. A single click will trigger the log generation and a second one shall deactivate it, so you can control this feature with great efficiency. A Download link inside the same section will permit you to save the created content as a text file, which you may then use on your PC. Even when the logs are deactivated, you'll still be able to download the data that has been previously generated.
