An access log is a thorough list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a particular Internet site. Every single file that was requested for whatever reason shall be listed, so if you have just one page with three embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for every of the 6 files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the page. A log typically shows the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s Operating System, worldwide web browser and IP address. Sometimes you could also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your site. The data an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to write reports on the overall performance of a website, besides the web stats your web hosting server may have produced.

Access Log Manager in Web Hosting

If you acquire a web hosting from us, you will be able to choose if access logs have to be generated and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You'll be able to enable this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, incorporated with all shared accounts. Any domain name you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to every one of them, so you can quickly enable or disable the generation of access logs individually for each site that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your personal computer by clicking on the Download link that you'll see inside the same exact section of the CP. The link shall be available even after you disable the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data compiled by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your Internet sites within a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll have the option to activate or disable the generation of access logs with only a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You'll find this feature inside the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access when you sign in. All it takes for our system to start producing logs is a click on the On button that you can see there. The function can be triggered independently for any Internet site no matter if it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you will find the full list of all the hosts within that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with a click and you can then view it manually or use some software on your personal computer. The log generation may be disabled by simply changing the On option to Off in the Logs section of your CP.
