An access log is a detailed list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a certain website. Every file which was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have only one page with 3 embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for every of the six files which were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log usually provides the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s OS, web browser and IP address. Oftentimes you could also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The data which an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to write reports on the efficiency of a site, independent of the web statistics your server may have created.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting

If you get a cloud web hosting from us, you'll be able to choose if access logs must be created and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You can enable this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all shared accounts. Every single domain you host or subdomain you set up shall be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can easily enable or deactivate the generation of access logs individually for every single website that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link that you'll see within the same exact section of the Control Panel. The link is available even after you stop the log generation, so you will still have access to the data compiled by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our state-of-the-art website hosting platform shall create access logs for every site hosted within a semi-dedicated server account, as long as this function is activated. All domains and subdomains that you have shall be listed inside the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, 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 just click on the compact button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You'll be able to disable this function whenever you want by following exactly the same steps. You can find a Download link for each log in the very same section of the CP, so you will be able to save the content produced by our system in .txt format with no more than a click. An existing log file can be downloaded even after the option has been deactivated, so you will still be able to check out the data that has already been generated.
