An access log is a detailed list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a particular site. Each and every file that was requested for some reason shall be listed, so if you have one page with 3 embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the six files that were accessed when the site visitor opened the page. A log usually contains the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s OS, browser and IP address. Sometimes you could also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The info which an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to write reports on the overall performance of a website, besides the web statistics that your web hosting server may have produced.

Access Log Manager in Website Hosting

When you purchase a website hosting from us, you shall be able to decide if access logs must be created and for which domains or subdomains in your account this should be done. You could enable this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, incorporated with all shared accounts. Every single domain name you host or subdomain you create shall be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each one of them, so you can easily activate or disable the generation of access logs separately for every single website that you have. You may save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link that you shall see in the very same section of the CP. The link is available even after you stop the log generation, so you will still have access to the data gathered by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our leading-edge hosting platform will generate access logs for each and every website hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this feature is activated. All domain names and subdomains that you have will be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which we supply with all of the accounts, so if you'd like our system to start generating logs for each of them, you should simply click on the little button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You could stop this function at any time by following exactly the same steps. You will find a Download link for every single log inside the same exact section of the Control Panel, so you could save the content generated by our system in .txt format with no more than a click. An existing log file could be downloaded even after the function has been disabled, so you'll still be able to view the data that's already been generated.
