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 just one page with 3 embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for any of the 6 files that were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log normally shows the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s OS, worldwide web browser and IP address. Sometimes you can also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your website. The data that an access log file features is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to prepare reports on the functionality of a website, independent of the web statistics which your server may have produced.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting

If you buy a cloud web hosting from us, you shall be able to determine if access logs have to be generated and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You may enable this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, included with all shared accounts. Each domain you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to each one of them, so you can quickly enable or disable the generation of access logs separately for every single website that you have. You could save a log to your personal computer by clicking on the Download link that you will see within the very same section of the Control Panel. The link will be available even after you deactivate the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data collected by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our state-of-the-art website hosting platform will generate access logs for every single website hosted within a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this function is enabled. All domains and subdomains that you have will be listed inside the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which we offer with all the accounts, so if you need our system to start creating logs for each 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 can stop this feature anytime by following the exact same steps. You will find a Download link for every single log within the very same section of the Control Panel, so you can easily save the content gathered by our system in .txt format with no more than a mouse click. An existing log file can be downloaded even after the option has been deactivated, so you'll still be able to check out the data which has already been generated.
