An access log is a thorough list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a certain website. Each and every file that was requested in some way shall be listed, so if you have just one page with three embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the six files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the page. A log normally offers the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s OS, worldwide web browser and IP address. Occasionally you may also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your site. The information that an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to write reports on the efficiency of a website, besides the web statistics your hosting server may have produced.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

Our custom Hepsia CP has a section focused on various logs and the access logs are among them. Once you sign in to your shared hosting account and visit this section, you shall find a list of all the domains and subdomains that you have. All it takes to permit the generation of access logs is to click on a button that will be available next to every domain/subdomain. In case the option is enabled, you'll see a download link along with the file size so far, so you'll be able to save the file to your computer and view it or process it with some application. Enabling or disabling the logs takes effect immediately, so if you don't need one, you'll be able to stop it with a click from the exact same section of the CP. You will still have the ability to access the already developed content by clicking on the Download link.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

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