An access log is a thorough list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a given site. Every file which was requested in some way shall be listed, so if you have a single webpage with three embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for every of the 6 files which were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log usually provides the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s OS, Internet browser and IP address. Occasionally you could also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your site. The information an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a PC and used to prepare reports on the overall performance of a website, in addition to the web statistics your hosting server may have produced.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be incredibly easy when you get a shared hosting from our company. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, included with all the accounts, features a section dedicated to different logs which is where you shall find the access logs too. Once you go there, you shall see a list of all the domains hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform will start producing 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 require logs, disabling the option is just as easy and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button in the very same section. All the logs are downloadable, which means that you can effortlessly save and manage them on your desktop PC or notebook.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it will not take more than several clicks to trigger the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The function can be enabled via the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and this could be done separately for each and every domain or subdomain you have inside your account. Once you log in and go to the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you'll discover a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each of them. A single click shall enable the log generation and another one shall disable it, so you can control this feature with great convenience. A Download link inside the same section will permit you to save the compiled content as a text file, which you can then use on your computer system. Even if the logs are disabled, you will still be able to download the data that has been previously generated.
