An access log is a thorough list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a certain website. Any file that was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have only one page with three embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for any of the 6 files which were accessed when the website visitor opened the webpage. A log usually provides the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s Operating System, Internet browser and IP address. Occasionally you can also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your website. The data an access log file features is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a PC and used to write reports on the overall performance of an Internet site, in addition to the web stats which your hosting server may have generated.

Access Log Manager in Web Hosting

If you choose one of our web hosting plans, you will get comprehensive access logs for all your Internet sites. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should check out the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see an extensive list of the domains and subdomains that you have added or created inside the hosting account. You will simply need to click on the On button, which is situated on the right-hand side of each and every hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs at once. To stop this feature, you'll have to follow the same exact steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains could be handled individually and anytime. You can find a download link within the Logs section of the Control Panel for any log created by our system, allowing you to save the file to your desktop or notebook and view it or use it via some log processing software.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll have the option to activate or deactivate the generation of access logs with only a few clicks from your Hepsia hosting CP. You'll find this function inside the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access after you sign in. All it takes for our system to start producing logs is a click on the On button which you will see there. The feature can be activated individually for any Internet site regardless if it uses a domain or a subdomain and you'll find the full list of all the hosts in that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with a click and you could then view it manually or use some software on your personal computer. The log generation could be stopped by simply changing the On option to Off inside the Logs section of your Control Panel.
