An access log is a detailed list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a certain Internet site. Any file which was requested in some way shall be listed, so if you have one webpage with 3 embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for each of the 6 files which were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log typically offers the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s OS, Internet browser and IP address. Occasionally you could also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your site. The data that an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to write reports on the performance of an Internet site, besides the web statistics your hosting server may have generated.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

If you obtain a shared hosting from our company, you will be able to decide if access logs have to be generated and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You'll be able to activate this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, included with all shared accounts. Every domain name 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 quickly trigger or disable the generation of access logs independently for every website that you have. You could save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link that you shall see inside the same section of the Control Panel. The link will be available even if you disable the log generation, so you will still have access to the data compiled by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to view in depth access logs for any Internet site that you host within a semi-dedicated server account created on our groundbreaking web hosting platform. Our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel will enable you to activate the function for each and every domain name or subdomain in the account separately, so that you can get logs only for the sites that you need. Once you sign in, you can navigate to the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a list of all the domains and subdomains that you've added or created and an On/Off button on the right side of every one of them. Enabling or disabling the generation of access logs is as basic as pressing this button and the change will take effect immediately. You may save the logs in .txt format by clicking on the Download link located in the very same section. The latter will be available always, even after you deactivate the feature for a certain domain name or subdomain.
