An access log is a detailed list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a particular site. Any file which was requested in some way shall be listed, so if you have a single page with 3 embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for any of the six files which were accessed when the website visitor opened the webpage. A log typically offers the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s OS, browser and IP address. Occasionally you could also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your site. 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 personal computer and used to prepare reports on the performance of a website, independent of the web statistics which your hosting server may have created.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting

When you obtain a cloud website hosting from our company, you shall be able to decide if access logs have to be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You could activate this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, integrated with all shared accounts. Any domain name you host or subdomain you set up will be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can easily enable or disable the generation of access logs separately for each site that you have. You may save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link you'll see in the very same section of the Control Panel. The link shall be available even after you stop the log generation, so you will still have access to the data collected by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it won't take more than a couple of mouse clicks to permit the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The function could be enabled from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this may be done separately for each domain name or subdomain you have in your account. Once you log in and check out the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you will discover a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each one. A single click shall activate the log generation and a second one shall deactivate it, so you can control this function with great comfort. A Download link within the same section will enable you to save the compiled content as a text file, which you could then use on your notebook or computer. Whether or not the logs are deactivated, you will still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
