An access log is a thorough list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a certain website. Any file that was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have one webpage with three embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for every of the six files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the webpage. A log usually shows the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s OS, Internet browser and IP address. In some cases you could also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your site. The data 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 overall performance of a website, besides the web statistics that your hosting server may have created.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting

If you purchase a cloud website hosting from our company, you shall be able to decide if access logs have to be created and for which domains or subdomains in your account this should be done. You may activate this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, integrated with all shared accounts. Every single domain name you host or subdomain you set up shall be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can easily enable or deactivate the generation of access logs independently for every single site that you have. You can save a log to your personal computer by clicking on the Download link that you shall see in the very same section of the CP. The link is available even if you stop the log generation, so you will still have access to the data collected by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our leading-edge hosting platform will create access logs for each and every website hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, provided that this feature is activated. All domain names and subdomains that you have will be listed inside the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which we provide with all of the accounts, so if you want our system to start creating logs for any of them, you should simply click on the small button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You'll be able to stop this feature anytime by following the same steps. You can find a Download link for each log inside the exact same section of the CP, so you can save the content gathered by our system in .txt format with no more than a click. An existing log file can be downloaded even after the function has been disabled, so you'll still be able to view the data that has already been generated.
