An access log is a detailed list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a particular site. Any file which was requested for some reason shall be listed, so if you have only one page with three embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the 6 files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the page. A log typically offers the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s Operating System, worldwide web browser and IP address. Oftentimes you could also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your site. The info an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a PC and used to write reports on the performance of a site, in addition to the web statistics which your server may have generated.

Access Log Manager in Web Hosting

If you acquire a web hosting from us, you shall be able to decide if access logs should be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You'll be able to activate this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, integrated with all shared accounts. Any domain you host or subdomain you set up will be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to every one of them, so you can quickly enable or deactivate the generation of access logs independently for every website that you have. You may save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link that you'll see inside the exact same section of the CP. The link shall be available even after you stop the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data compiled by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our advanced web hosting platform will create access logs for every website hosted within a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this feature is permitted. All domains and subdomains that you have shall be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which we offer with all the accounts, so if you want our system to start producing logs for each of them, you should just click on the compact button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You can disable this function anytime by following the very same steps. You'll find a Download link for every single log within the same exact section of the Control Panel, so you will be able to save the content produced by our system in .txt format with simply a click. An existing log file could be downloaded even after the function has been deactivated, so you'll still be able to view the data that has already been generated.
