An access log is a detailed list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a given site. Every single file that was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have only one page with 3 embedded graphics, 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 webpage. A log normally provides the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s OS, Internet browser and IP address. Occasionally you could also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The data which an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to write reports on the functionality of a website, in addition to the web statistics that your server may have generated.

Access Log Manager in Shared Web Hosting

If you purchase a shared web hosting from our company, you will be able to choose if access logs have to be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You may activate this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all shared accounts. Each and every domain you host or subdomain you create shall be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can conveniently trigger or disable the generation of access logs independently for each website that you have. You could save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link that you will see within the same exact section of the CP. The link shall be available even if you disable the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data gathered by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our advanced web hosting platform shall generate access logs for any website hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, provided that this function is permitted. All domains and subdomains that you have shall be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which we offer with all the accounts, so if you want our system to start producing logs for each of them, you should simply click on the small button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You can stop this feature whenever you want by following the very same steps. You can find a Download link for each log inside the very same section of the Control Panel, so you can easily save the content produced by our system in .txt format with simply a click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the option has been disabled, so you'll still be able to check out the data that's already been generated.
