An access log is a complete list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a certain website. Every file which was requested for whatever reason shall be listed, so if you have only one webpage with 3 embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the six files that were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log typically offers the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s OS, Internet browser and IP address. Oftentimes you may also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The information that an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a PC and used to prepare reports on the functionality of a website, aside from the web stats your hosting server may have produced.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

When you obtain a shared hosting from our company, you shall be able to choose if access logs must be created and for which domains or subdomains in your account this should be done. You may activate this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all shared accounts. Every single domain you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to every one of them, so you can effortlessly enable or disable the generation of access logs individually for each website that you have. You may save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link that you shall see inside the same exact section of the Control Panel. The link will be available even if you deactivate the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data collected by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your Internet sites within a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will have the option to enable or deactivate the generation of access logs with only several mouse clicks inside your Hepsia hosting CP. You'll find this feature within the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access once you sign in. All it takes for our system to start producing logs is a click on the On button that you will see there. The function can be enabled individually for any site no matter if it uses a domain or a subdomain and you will find the full list of all the hosts within that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with a click and you can then look at it manually or use some software on your PC. The log generation can be disabled by simply switching the On option to Off inside the Logs section of your Control Panel.
