An access log is a thorough list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a certain Internet site. Any file that was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have only one page with 3 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 six files that were accessed when the website visitor opened the page. A log typically provides 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 Internet site. The information an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to prepare reports on the efficiency of an Internet site, independent of the web stats your web hosting server may have generated.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be extremely easy if you buy a shared hosting from our company. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, included with all of the accounts, features a section on different logs and this is where you'll find the access logs too. Once you navigate there, you shall see a list of all the domains hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform will start producing an access log for each of them the instant you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you no longer require logs, disabling the option is just as fast and can be done by clicking on the Off button inside the same exact section. All the logs are downloadable, therefore you can conveniently save and manage them on your desktop PC or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will have the option to trigger or disable the generation of access logs with no more than a few clicks inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You shall find this feature in the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access after you sign in. All it takes for our system to start generating logs is a click on the On button that you can see there. The function can be triggered independently for any website regardless of whether it uses a domain or a subdomain and you will find a detailed list of all the hosts within that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with just a click and you can then look at it manually or use some software on your PC. The log generation could be deactivated by simply changing the On option to Off within the Logs section of your Control Panel.
