An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a given Internet site. Any file which was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have only one page with 3 embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for any of the six files that were accessed when the site visitor opened the page. A log usually shows the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s Operating System, web browser and IP address. Sometimes you may also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your site. The information an access log file features is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to write reports on the performance of a site, besides the web statistics that your web hosting server may have produced.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting

When you choose one of our cloud web hosting solutions, you'll get comprehensive access logs for your Internet sites. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a thorough list of the domains and subdomains which you have added or created in the web hosting account. You will simply need to click on the On button, which is found on the right-hand side of each and every hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs at once. To disable this function, you will need to follow the exact same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains could be handled independently and whenever you want. You can find a download link inside the Logs section of the CP for any log produced by our system, so you can save the file to your personal computer and view it or use it through some log processing software.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

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