An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a certain Internet site. Each and every file which was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have one page with three embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for every of the 6 files that were accessed when the website visitor opened the webpage. A log normally shows the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s OS, Internet browser and IP address. Occasionally you may also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your site. The information 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 efficiency of a website, in addition to the web statistics which your web hosting server may have produced.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

Our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel includes a section dedicated to various logs and the access logs are one of them. When you sign in to your cloud hosting account and visit this section, you'll find a list of all the domains and subdomains you have. All it takes to permit the generation of access logs is to press a button which will be available next to every single domain/subdomain. In case the option is active, you shall see a download link as well as the file size so far, so you'll be able to save the file to your PC and look at it or process it with some program. Enabling or disabling the logs becomes effective instantly, so if you don't need one, you'll be able to stop it with just a click from the very same section of the Control Panel. You'll still be able to access the already generated content by clicking on the Download link.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it won't take more than a couple of clicks to permit the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The function could be activated via the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and this may be done individually for each domain or subdomain you have in your account. When you log in and visit the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you will see a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each one. One click shall activate the log generation and a second one shall disable it, so you can control this function with great efficiency. A Download link within the same section will allow you to save the created content as a text file, which you can then use on your personal computer. Even when the logs are deactivated, you will still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
