An access log is a detailed list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a particular website. Every single file which was requested for some reason shall be listed, so if you have one page with three embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the 6 files that were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log normally provides the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s Operating System, worldwide web browser and IP address. Occasionally you can also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your website. The information an access log file provides 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 overall performance of a site, in addition to the web statistics your server may have produced.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

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

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it will not take more than a couple of mouse clicks to activate the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The feature can be permitted from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this could be done separately for each domain name or subdomain which you have inside 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 of them. A single click will enable the log generation and a second one shall disable it, so you can control this function with great simplicity. A Download link in the same section will enable you to save the created content as a text file, which you can then use on your computer. Even when the logs are deactivated, you'll still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
