An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a particular Internet site. Every single file that was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have one page with 3 embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for every 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, as well as the visitor’s Operating System, worldwide web browser and IP address. Sometimes you can also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The data that an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a PC and used to write reports on the performance of an Internet site, besides the web statistics which your hosting server may have generated.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

When you opt for one of our shared hosting solutions, you will receive in-depth access logs for all your Internet sites. After you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you can check out the Access/Error Logs section where you will see an extensive list of the domains and subdomains which you have added or created in the web hosting account. You'll simply have to click on the On button, which is located on the right-hand side of every hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs at once. To disable this function, you will have to follow the exact same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be handled separately and anytime. You can find a download link within the Logs section of the CP for every log created by our system, so you're able to save the file to your desktop or notebook and view it or use it with some log processing software.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it will not take more than a couple of clicks to permit the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The function can be enabled from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this could be done individually for every single domain or subdomain that you have in your account. As soon as you log in and go to the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you'll see a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to every one of them. A single click will trigger the log generation and another one will deactivate it, so you can control this function with great convenience. A Download link within the same section will enable you to save the generated content as a text file, that you can then use on your personal computer. Even when the logs are disabled, you will still be able to download the data that has been previously generated.
