An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a particular Internet site. Every file which was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have only one page with three embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for each of the six files which were accessed when the website visitor opened the page. A log normally contains the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s OS, web browser and IP address. In some cases you may also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your site. The info that 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 which your hosting server may have produced.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting

If you choose one of our cloud website hosting solutions, you will receive in-depth access logs for all your sites. As soon as you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you should check out the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a full list of the domain names and subdomains that you've added or created in the web hosting account. You'll simply need to click on the On button, which is situated on the right-hand side of every hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs at once. To stop this function, you'll need to follow the exact same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be handled independently and whenever you want. You can find a download link inside the Logs section of the CP for any log generated by our system, so you're able to save the file to your laptop or computer and view it or use it through some log processing software.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it will not take more than a couple of clicks to enable the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The function can be activated from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and this can be done independently for every single domain name or subdomain you have within your account. As soon as you log in and look at the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you will see a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each one. One click shall activate the log generation and a second one will deactivate it, so you can control this feature with great simplicity. A Download link in the same section will permit you to save the generated content as a text file, which you could then use on your notebook or computer. Even if the logs are deactivated, you shall still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
