An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a particular Internet site. Every file which was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have a single webpage with three embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for any of the 6 files that were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log normally shows the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s OS, web browser and IP address. Sometimes you could also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The information an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to write reports on the efficiency of a website, independent of the web statistics that your hosting server may have produced.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting

When you choose one of our cloud web hosting plans, you shall get comprehensive access logs for your sites. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you can check out the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see a full list of the domain names and subdomains that you have added or created inside the hosting account. You will only have to click on the On button, which is found on the right-hand side of every hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs right away. To disable this function, you'll have to follow the exact same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains could be handled separately and whenever you want. You will find a download link within the Logs section of the CP for every log generated by our system, so you're able to save the file to your computer system and view it or use it via some log processing software.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your websites within a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll have the option to enable or deactivate the generation of access logs with only a couple of clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You shall find this function inside the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access once you sign in. All it takes for our system to start generating logs is a single click on the On button you'll see there. The function can be activated separately for any Internet site regardless if it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you'll find a complete list of all the hosts within that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with simply a click and you can then see it manually or use some software on your personal computer. The log generation could be stopped by simply switching the On option to Off in the Logs section of your CP.
