An access log is a thorough list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a given website. Every file which was requested for some reason shall be listed, so if you have just one webpage with three embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for each of the 6 files which were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log typically contains the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s Operating System, Internet browser and IP address. Sometimes you may also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your site. The information an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to prepare reports on the performance of a website, independent of the web stats that your server may have created.

Access Log Manager in Shared Web Hosting

If you pick one of our shared web hosting packages, you will get detailed access logs for all your sites. After you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you can check out the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a thorough list of the domain names and subdomains that you have added or created in the hosting account. You will simply have to click on the On button, which is found on the right-hand side of each and every hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs right away. To stop this function, you will need to follow the same exact steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains could be managed individually and whenever you want. You'll find a download link in the Logs section of the Control Panel for every log produced by our system, so you can save the file to your desktop or notebook and view it or use it with some log processing software.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

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