An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a certain site. Each and every file that was requested for some reason shall be listed, so if you have one webpage with three embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for any of the 6 files that were accessed when the website visitor opened the page. A log typically provides the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s Operating System, Internet browser and IP address. Oftentimes you can also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The information which an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to prepare reports on the overall performance of an Internet site, besides the web stats which 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 hosting Control Panel, supplied with all the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs and that is where you'll find the access logs as well. Once you navigate there, you shall see a list of all the domains hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform shall start generating an access log for each of them the instant you click on the On button, that you will see on the right. If you don't require logs, disabling the option is just as fast and can be done by clicking on the Off button in the very same section. All of the logs are downloadable, which means that you can easily save and manage them on your desktop PC or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it shall not take more than a couple of mouse clicks to permit the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The feature could be permitted through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this may be done individually for each domain or subdomain you have within your account. Once you log in and navigate to the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you'll discover a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to every one 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 efficiency. A Download link within the same section will permit you to save the generated content as a text file, which you can then use on your PC. Even when the logs are disabled, you will still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
