An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a certain site. Every single file which was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have only one webpage with 3 embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for any of the 6 files that were accessed when the site visitor opened the page. A log normally contains the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s OS, Internet browser and IP address. Sometimes you can also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The info an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to write reports on the efficiency of an Internet site, independent of the web stats which your hosting server may have created.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be very easy when you get a cloud web hosting from us. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which comes with all of the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs and this is where you shall find the access logs too. Once you go there, you shall see a list of all the domain names hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform shall start producing an access log for any of them the instant you click on the On button, that you will see on the right. If you don't need logs, disabling the option is just as quick and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button in the same section. All of the logs are downloadable, therefore you can easily save and manage them on your PC or notebook.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it won't take more than several mouse clicks to enable the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The feature may be activated from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this could be done individually for each domain name or subdomain you have inside your account. When you log in and look at the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you will find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to all of them. A single click will trigger the log generation and a second one will deactivate it, so you can control this feature with great comfort. A Download link within the same section will enable you to save the gathered content as a text file, that you could then use on your personal computer. Even if the logs are deactivated, you will still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
