An access log is a thorough list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a particular website. Every single file that was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have only 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 every of the 6 files which were accessed when the website visitor opened the webpage. A log normally offers the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s OS, web browser and IP address. Occasionally you may also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your site. The data an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to write reports on the overall performance of a site, aside from the web statistics which your server may have produced.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be very easy when you buy a cloud hosting from us. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, provided with all of the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs and that is where you shall find the access logs too. When you go there, you will see a list of all the domain names hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform will start producing an access log for any of them as early as 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 simple and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button inside the exact same section. All the logs are downloadable, which means that you can easily save and manage them on your PC or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your sites inside a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will have the option to enable or disable the generation of access logs with only several clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You'll find this feature inside the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access when you sign in. All it takes for our system to start generating logs is a single click on the On button that you will see there. The feature can be activated independently for any Internet site regardless of whether it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you shall find a detailed list of all the hosts within that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with only a click and you could then view it manually or use some software on your personal computer. The log generation could be disabled by simply switching the On option to Off within the Logs section of your Control Panel.
