An access log is a complete list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a particular site. Each and every file which was requested for whatever reason shall be listed, so if you have one webpage with three embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the 6 files that were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log normally provides the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s OS, web browser and IP address. In some cases you could also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your website. The information that an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to write reports on the overall performance of a website, aside from the web stats that your web hosting server may have created.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting

Our custom Hepsia Control Panel has a section focused on various logs and the access logs are among them. Once you sign in to your cloud web hosting account and navigate to this section, you'll find a list of all the domain names and subdomains you have. All it takes to allow the generation of access logs is to click on a button that will be available next to each and every domain/subdomain. If the option is enabled, you shall see a download link as well as the file size so far, so you'll be able to save the file to your computer and look at it or process it with some application. Enabling or disabling the logs takes effect instantaneously, so if you no longer need one, you can stop it with simply a mouse click from the very same section of the Control Panel. You shall still be able to access the already created content by simply clicking on the Download link.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it will not take more than a couple of clicks to permit the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The feature could be permitted via the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and this could be done separately for every single domain name or subdomain you have inside your account. Whenever you log in and check out the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you will find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to all of them. A single click will trigger the log generation and another one will deactivate it, so you can control this function with great simplicity. A Download link within the same section will allow you to save the generated content as a text file, that you can then use on your PC. Even if the logs are disabled, you'll still be able to download the data that has been previously generated.
