An access log is a detailed list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a given website. Every single file that was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have one webpage with 3 embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the 6 files which were accessed when the website visitor opened the page. A log normally contains the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s OS, Internet browser and IP address. Occasionally you can also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your website. The info which an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a PC and used to prepare reports on the efficiency of a website, independent of the web stats which your hosting server may have created.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

When you acquire a cloud hosting from our company, you shall be able to choose if access logs have to be generated and for which domains or subdomains in your account this should be done. You'll be able to enable this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all shared accounts. Each and every domain name you host or subdomain you create shall be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can quickly activate or disable the generation of access logs independently for every single site that you have. You can save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link you'll see in the same section of the Control Panel. The link will be available even after you stop the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data collected by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our advanced website hosting platform will create access logs for any website hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, as long as this function is permitted. All domain names and subdomains that you have will be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which we offer with all the accounts, so if you'd like our system to start creating logs for any of them, you should simply click on the little button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You could disable this feature whenever you want by following the same steps. You will find a Download link for each log in the same section of the CP, so you will be able to save the content produced by our system in .txt format with simply a mouse click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the function has been deactivated, so you'll still be able to view the data which has already been generated.
