An access log is a detailed list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a certain site. Every file which was requested in some way shall be listed, so if you have a single page with 3 embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for every of the six files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the page. A log normally shows the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s OS, browser and IP address. Oftentimes you may also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your site. The info that an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to prepare reports on the functionality of a website, aside from the web statistics that your server may have produced.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be very easy if you get a cloud hosting from our company. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, supplied with all the accounts, has a section on different logs which is where you will find the access logs too. As you navigate there, you'll see a list of all the domain names hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform shall start creating an access log for any of them as soon as you click on the On button, that you will see on the right. If you no longer require logs, disabling the option is just as fast and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button within the very same section. All of the logs are downloadable, so you can conveniently save and manage them on your desktop PC or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our sophisticated web hosting platform shall create access logs for each and every website hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this feature is permitted. All domain names and subdomains that you have shall be listed in the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which we supply with all the accounts, so if you want our system to start producing logs for each of them, you should just click on the little button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You may disable this function at any time by following exactly the same steps. You can find a Download link for each and every log inside the same section of the CP, so you could save the content gathered by our system in .txt format with simply a click. An existing log file could be downloaded even after the option has been disabled, so you'll still be able to look at the data that's already been generated.
