An access log is a complete list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a certain Internet site. Each and every file which was requested for some reason shall be listed, so if you have only one page with three embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for any of the 6 files that were accessed when the website visitor opened the webpage. A log typically provides the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s OS, worldwide web browser and IP address. Sometimes you can also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The info which an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a PC and used to prepare reports on the performance of a site, aside from the web stats which your web hosting server may have created.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting

If you choose one of our cloud web hosting solutions, you shall get in-depth access logs for all your websites. Once you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you can check out the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see a complete list of the domain names and subdomains that you have added or created inside the web hosting account. You will only need to click on the On button, which is located on the right-hand side of each and every hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs right away. To stop this feature, you'll need to follow the very same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be handled individually and at any time. You will find a download link within the Logs section of the CP for every log generated by our system, allowing you to save the file to your desktop or notebook and view it or use it via some log processing software.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall have the option to trigger or deactivate the generation of access logs with no more than several clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You'll find this function within the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access after you sign in. All it takes for our system to start producing logs is one click on the On button that you will see there. The feature can be activated independently for any site regardless of whether it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you will find the complete list of all the hosts inside that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with only a click and you could then look at it manually or use some software on your PC. The log generation could be stopped by simply switching the On option to Off in the Logs section of your Control Panel.
