An access log is a thorough list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a given website. Every single file which was requested for some reason shall be listed, so if you have only one page with three embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for any of the 6 files that were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log typically offers the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s Operating System, web browser and IP address. Oftentimes you may also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your site. The info an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a PC and used to prepare reports on the performance of a site, aside from the web stats that your web hosting server may have produced.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting

Our custom-built Hepsia CP has a section focused on various logs and the access logs are among them. When you sign in to your cloud website hosting account and go to this section, you will find a list of all the domain names and subdomains you have. All it takes to allow the generation of access logs is to click on a button which will be available next to each domain/subdomain. In case the option is enabled, you will see a download link along with the file size so far, so you will be able to save the file to your laptop or computer and look at it or process it with some application. Enabling or disabling the logs becomes effective instantly, so if you no longer need one, you may stop it with a mouse click from the exact same section of the CP. You shall still be able to access the already generated content by simply clicking the Download link.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our leading-edge hosting platform shall create access logs for every single website hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, provided that this function is activated. All domain names and subdomains that you have will be listed in the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which we offer with all of the accounts, so if you'd like 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 may deactivate this feature anytime by following the same steps. You will find a Download link for each and every log in the very same section of the Control Panel, 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 may be downloaded even after the feature has been deactivated, so you will still be able to see the data which has already been generated.
