An access log is a complete list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a given website. Each and every file which was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have just one webpage with three embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for each of the six files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the webpage. A log normally provides the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s Operating System, Internet browser and IP address. Occasionally you may also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your website. The data that an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to write reports on the functionality of a website, in addition to the web stats that your server may have produced.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

When you opt for one of our shared hosting plans, you'll get in-depth access logs for your sites. Once you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should check out the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a complete list of the domain names and subdomains that you have added or created inside the web hosting account. You will only have to click on the On button, that is found on the right-hand side of each and every hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs at once. To disable this function, you will have to follow the same exact steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be managed independently and anytime. You'll find a download link within the Logs section of the CP for any log created by our system, so that you can save the file to your laptop or computer and view it or use it through some log processing software.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it will not take more than a couple of clicks to enable 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 every single domain name or subdomain that you have in your account. Once you log in and go to the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you will 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 deactivate it, so you can control this feature with great simplicity. A Download link inside the same section will enable you to save the created content as a text file, that you could then use on your notebook or computer. Even when the logs are deactivated, you will still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
