An access log is a complete list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a given website. Every single file that was requested for some reason shall be listed, so if you have a single webpage with three embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for any of the 6 files that were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log usually contains the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s OS, web browser and IP address. Oftentimes you could also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your website. The info which 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 write reports on the functionality of a website, in addition to the web statistics that your web hosting server may have generated.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be really easy when you buy a shared hosting from us. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, included with all the accounts, has a section on different logs and that is where you will find the access logs as well. When you go there, you shall see a list of all the domains hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform shall start generating an access log for each of them as soon as you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you no longer need logs, disabling the option is just as quick and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button in the exact same section. All of the logs are downloadable, therefore you can comfortably save and manage them on your PC or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our advanced website hosting platform will generate access logs for each website hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this feature is activated. All domains and subdomains that you have shall be listed inside the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which we offer with all of the accounts, so if you need our system to start generating logs for any of them, you should simply click on the little 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 function anytime by following the exact same steps. You'll find a Download link for each log in the same exact section of the CP, so you will be able to save the content produced by our system in .txt format with no more than a click. An existing log file could be downloaded even after the function has been disabled, so you will still be able to check out the data that's already been generated.
