An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a certain site. Each and every file that was requested for whatever reason shall be listed, so if you have just one webpage with three embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for every of the six files which were accessed when the website visitor opened the webpage. A log usually offers the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s Operating System, browser and IP address. Sometimes you can also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your site. The information which an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a PC and used to write reports on the functionality of an Internet site, besides the web statistics that your server may have produced.

Access Log Manager in Web Hosting

If you order a web hosting from us, you shall be able to choose if access logs should be generated and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You'll be able to activate this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts. Every single domain name you host or subdomain you set up shall be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each one of them, so you can quickly activate or disable the generation of access logs separately for every single site that you have. You can save a log to your personal computer by clicking on the Download link you'll see in the exact same section of the CP. The link will be available even after you deactivate the log generation, so you will still have access to the data gathered by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our leading-edge hosting platform will generate access logs for any site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, as long as this function is permitted. All domain names and subdomains that you have shall be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which we offer with all the accounts, so if you want our system to start generating logs for any of them, you should just click on the little button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You can stop this feature anytime by following the very same steps. You'll find a Download link for every single log inside the exact same section of the CP, 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 option has been disabled, so you'll still be able to check out the data which has already been generated.
