An access log is a thorough list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a given website. Any file which was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have one webpage with three embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the 6 files which were accessed when the website visitor opened the page. A log usually provides the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s OS, browser and IP address. Occasionally you may also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your site. The information which an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to write reports on the overall performance of an Internet site, independent of the web statistics your server may have generated.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be incredibly easy when you acquire a cloud website hosting from us. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, provided with all of the accounts, features a section dedicated to different logs and that is where you will find the access logs too. Once you navigate there, you will see a list of all the domain names hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform will start producing an access log for each of them as early as you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you don't need logs, disabling the option is just as quick and can be done by clicking on the Off button inside the very same section. All of the logs are downloadable, therefore you can conveniently save and manage them on your desktop computer or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our leading-edge web hosting platform will create access logs for every Internet site hosted within a semi-dedicated server account, provided that this feature is activated. All domain names and subdomains that you have will be listed in the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which we supply with all the accounts, so if you want our system to start producing logs for each of them, you should simply click on the small button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You may stop this feature at any time by following exactly the same steps. You can find a Download link for each and every log inside the same exact section of the CP, so you will be able to save the content generated by our system in .txt format with only a click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the function has been deactivated, so you will still be able to see the data which has already been generated.
