An access log is a detailed list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a given site. Every single file which was requested for some reason shall be listed, so if you have only one page with three embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for each of the six files which were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log typically contains the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s Operating System, web browser and IP address. Oftentimes you may also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your site. The information which an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to prepare reports on the functionality of an Internet site, independent of the web statistics which your server may have generated.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be exceptionally easy when you buy a cloud hosting from our company. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which comes with all the accounts, features a section dedicated to different logs and that is where you will find the access logs too. As you go there, you shall see a list of all the domains hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform will start generating an access log for any of them the instant you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you no longer need logs, disabling the option is just as simple and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button within the same exact section. All of the logs are downloadable, so you can comfortably save and manage them on your PC or notebook.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

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