An access log is a detailed list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a particular Internet site. Each and every file which was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have just one page with three embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for any of the 6 files which were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log typically provides the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s OS, browser and IP address. Occasionally you may also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your website. The information that an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to prepare reports on the performance of a site, besides the web statistics your server may have produced.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

Our custom-built Hepsia CP features a section dedicated to various logs and the access logs are among them. As you sign in to your shared hosting account and go to this section, you'll find a list of all the domain names and subdomains which you have. All it takes to enable the generation of access logs is to press a button that will be available next to each and every domain/subdomain. When the option is active, you'll see a download link as well as the file size so far, so you'll be able to save the file to your computer and examine it or process it with some app. Enabling or disabling the logs becomes effective right away, so if you don't require one, you'll be able to stop it with a click from the same exact section of the Control Panel. You'll still have the ability to access the already created content by clicking on the Download link.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our sophisticated hosting platform shall create access logs for every single Internet site hosted within a semi-dedicated server account, as long as this feature is activated. All domain names and subdomains that you have shall be listed in the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which we offer with all the accounts, so if you need our system to start creating logs for each of them, you should simply click on the little button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You could disable this feature at any time by following the same steps. You'll find a Download link for every single log in the very same section of the Control Panel, so you can easily save the content produced by our system in .txt format with only a click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the feature has been disabled, so you will still be able to check out the data which has already been generated.
