An access log is a thorough list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a given site. Every single file which was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have a single webpage with three embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for any of the 6 files that were accessed when the site visitor opened the webpage. A log normally provides the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s OS, browser and IP address. Sometimes you could also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your site. The info that an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to prepare reports on the functionality of a site, aside from the web statistics which your hosting server may have generated.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting

When you opt for one of our cloud website hosting packages, you will receive detailed access logs for your sites. As soon as you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you can check out the Access/Error Logs section where you will see an extensive list of the domain names and subdomains that you have added or created within the web hosting account. You'll simply have to click on the On button, that is found on the right-hand side of each and every hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs straight away. To stop this feature, you'll have to follow the same exact steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be managed separately and whenever you want. You'll find a download link inside the Logs section of the Control Panel for every log produced by our system, so you're able to save the file to your PC and view it or use it through some log processing software.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our advanced web hosting platform shall create access logs for every single site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, provided that this feature is enabled. All domain names and subdomains that you have shall be listed inside the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which we offer with all the accounts, so if you'd like our system to start producing logs for any of them, you should just click on the little button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You can disable this feature at any time by following the exact same steps. You will find a Download link for each and every log inside the same exact section of the CP, so you can easily save the content generated by our system in .txt format with just a mouse click. An existing log file could be downloaded even after the feature has been deactivated, so you will still be able to check out the data which has already been generated.
