An access log is a thorough list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a certain site. Every single file which was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have just one page with 3 embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the six files that were accessed when the site visitor opened the page. A log normally contains the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s OS, browser and IP address. Occasionally you can also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your site. The data which an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to write reports on the performance of a site, independent of the web stats your hosting server may have created.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be extremely simple when you buy a cloud web hosting from us. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, provided with all of the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs and this is where you will find the access logs as well. Once you go there, you will see a list of all the domains hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform will start creating an access log for each of them as early 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 easy and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button inside the same exact section. All of the logs are downloadable, therefore you can conveniently save and manage them on your PC or notebook.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall have the option to trigger or disable the generation of access logs with only several clicks from your Hepsia hosting CP. You will find this feature within the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access when you sign in. All it takes for our system to start creating logs is a single click on the On button which you can see there. The feature can be enabled separately for any website regardless of whether it uses a domain or a subdomain and you shall find the full 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 view it manually or use some software on your laptop or computer. The log generation can be disabled by simply switching the On option to Off in the Logs section of your CP.
