An access log is a detailed list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a given site. Any file that was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have a single webpage with three embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the six files which were accessed when the website visitor opened the webpage. A log normally shows the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s OS, worldwide web browser and IP address. Oftentimes you could also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your site. The information which an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a PC and used to write reports on the performance of a site, aside from the web stats which your server may have produced.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be extremely easy when you acquire a cloud hosting from us. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all of the accounts, has a section on different logs and that is where you shall find the access logs too. As you go there, you'll see a list of all the domain names hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform shall start creating an access log for each of them as early as you click on the On button, that you will see on the right. If you no longer need logs, disabling the option is just as fast and can be done by clicking on the Off button within the exact same section. All the logs are downloadable, which means that you can conveniently save and manage them on your desktop computer or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it shall not take more than a few mouse clicks to activate the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The feature could be permitted from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this could be done independently for each and every domain name or subdomain which you have in your account. As soon as you log in and go to the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you will see a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to all of them. One click shall trigger the log generation and a second one shall deactivate it, so you can control this feature with great efficiency. A Download link inside the same section will allow you to save the gathered content as a text file, that you can then use on your computer. Whether or not the logs are deactivated, you shall still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
