An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a given website. Each and every file that was requested for some reason shall 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 six entries - one for any of the 6 files which were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log typically shows the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s OS, web browser and IP address. Occasionally you could also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your website. The data that an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to prepare reports on the efficiency of a site, independent of the web statistics that your server may have produced.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

When you choose one of our shared hosting plans, you will get detailed access logs for all your websites. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should check out the Access/Error Logs section where you will see an extensive list of the domain names and subdomains which 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 hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs straight away. 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 managed individually and at any time. You will find a download link in the Logs section of the Control Panel for any log generated by our system, so you're able to save the file to your personal computer and view it or use it with some log processing software.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our sophisticated hosting platform shall generate access logs for any Internet site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, as long as this function is permitted. All domain names and subdomains that you have shall be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which we supply with all of the accounts, so if you would like our system to start producing 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 may stop this function whenever you want by following exactly the same steps. You'll find a Download link for each log within the same exact section of the Control Panel, so you will be able to save the content gathered by our system in .txt format with just a mouse click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the function has been deactivated, so you'll still be able to look at the data that's already been generated.
