An access log is a complete list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a particular site. Every single file that was requested in some way shall be listed, so if you have just one page with three embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for each of the 6 files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the webpage. A log usually offers the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s Operating System, web browser and IP address. In some cases you could also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your site. The info an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to prepare reports on the performance of a site, besides the web statistics that your server may have generated.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting

When you purchase a cloud website hosting from us, you shall be able to determine if access logs should be produced and for which domains or subdomains in your account this should be done. You may enable this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, included with all shared accounts. Every single domain you host or subdomain you create shall be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to every one of them, so you can conveniently trigger or disable the generation of access logs independently for each site that you have. You could save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link that you'll see inside the same section of the Control Panel. The link is available even after 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

Our advanced hosting platform will create access logs for any site hosted within a semi-dedicated server account, as long as this feature is activated. All domains and subdomains that you have will be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, that we offer with all of the accounts, so if you need our system to start generating logs for each of them, you should just click on the little button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You may stop this function anytime by following the very same steps. You'll find a Download link for each and every log within the same section of the CP, so you could save the content gathered by our system in .txt format with only a click. An existing log file could be downloaded even after the option has been deactivated, so you will still be able to view the data that's already been generated.
