An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a certain Internet site. Every file that was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have one webpage with 3 embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for any of the 6 files that were accessed when the site visitor opened the page. A log typically provides the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s OS, Internet browser and IP address. Sometimes you could also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your site. The data an access log file features is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to prepare reports on the performance of a site, in addition to the web statistics which your server may have produced.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting

If you choose one of our cloud website hosting solutions, you will get in-depth access logs for all your websites. Once you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see an extensive list of the domain names and subdomains that you have added or created within the web hosting account. You will only have to click on the On button, which is found on the right-hand side of each hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs straight away. To stop this function, you'll need to follow the same exact steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be managed independently and at any time. You will find a download link within the Logs section of the Control Panel for every log produced by our system, allowing you to save the file to your computer system and view it or use it through some log processing software.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your websites within a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will have the option to enable or deactivate the generation of access logs with just several mouse clicks within your Hepsia hosting CP. You will find this function within the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access as soon as you sign in. All it takes for our system to start generating logs is one click on the On button which you will see there. The feature can be enabled independently for any Internet site regardless if it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you will find the full list of all the hosts in that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with only a click and you can then see it manually or use some software on your laptop or computer. The log generation could be disabled by simply switching the On option to Off in the Logs section of your Control Panel.
