An access log is a complete list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a given Internet site. Every file that was requested for some reason shall be listed, so if you have just one webpage with three embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the six files which were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log typically shows the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s OS, browser and IP address. Sometimes you may also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your site. The information that an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to prepare reports on the functionality of an Internet site, independent of the web stats your hosting server may have created.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

When you get a cloud hosting from us, you shall be able to determine if access logs have to be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You can activate this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, integrated with all shared accounts. Every domain name you host or subdomain you set up shall be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each of them, so you can effortlessly activate or disable the generation of access logs individually for every single site that you have. You can save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link that you shall see within the very same section of the CP. The link will be available even if you deactivate the log generation, so you will still have access to the data compiled by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our advanced web hosting platform will generate access logs for any Internet site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this function is enabled. All domain names and subdomains that you have will be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which we offer with all the accounts, so if you would like our system to start generating logs for each of them, you should just click on the small button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You could disable this function anytime by following the same steps. You will find a Download link for every single log inside the same exact section of the CP, so you will be able to save the content generated by our system in .txt format with simply a mouse click. An existing log file could be downloaded even after the function has been deactivated, so you'll still be able to see the data which has already been generated.
