An access log is a thorough list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a particular Internet site. Every single file that was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have a single webpage with 3 embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the six files which were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log typically offers the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s OS, worldwide web browser and IP address. Sometimes you may also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The info which an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to write reports on the functionality of a site, in addition to the web statistics that your server may have generated.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

When you buy a cloud hosting from us, you shall be able to decide if access logs must be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You'll be able to enable this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, included with all shared accounts. Every single domain you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each of them, so you can quickly activate or deactivate the generation of access logs individually for each site that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link that you shall see inside the exact same section of the CP. The link will be available even if you deactivate the log generation, so you will still have access to the data gathered by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your websites within a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will have the option to enable or disable the generation of access logs with no more than a couple of clicks from your Hepsia hosting CP. You'll find this feature 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 a single click on the On button that you will see there. The function can be triggered independently for any Internet site regardless of whether it uses a domain or a subdomain and you shall find the complete list of all the hosts in that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with just a click and you may then view it manually or use some software on your PC. The log generation may be deactivated by simply switching the On option to Off inside the Logs section of your Control Panel.
