An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a certain website. Any file which was requested for whatever 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 will contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the 6 files that were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log typically shows the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s OS, worldwide web browser and IP address. Occasionally you can also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your website. The info an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a PC and used to write reports on the efficiency of a site, independent of the web stats which your server may have generated.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be incredibly easy when you acquire a cloud hosting from our company. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which comes with all of the accounts, features a section on different logs and that is where you will find the access logs too. When you navigate there, you'll see a list of all the domain names hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform shall start generating an access log for each of them the instant you click on the On button, which you'll see on the right. If you no longer need logs, disabling the option is just as easy and can be done by clicking on the Off button in the same exact section. All of the logs are downloadable, so you can easily save and manage them on your desktop computer or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our sophisticated web hosting platform shall generate access logs for each site hosted within a semi-dedicated server account, provided that this feature is activated. All domain names and subdomains that you have shall be listed in the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, that we offer with all the accounts, so if you want our system to start generating logs for each of them, you should simply click on the compact button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You can stop this feature anytime by following the same steps. You'll find a Download link for each and every log inside the same exact section of the CP, so you may save the content gathered by our system in .txt format with only a click. An existing log file can be downloaded even after the function has been disabled, so you will still be able to view the data that's already been generated.
