An access log is a detailed list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a certain website. Every single file that was requested in some way shall be listed, so if you have one webpage with three embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for any 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, along with the visitor’s Operating System, Internet browser and IP address. Occasionally you could also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your website. The information which an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a PC and used to write reports on the efficiency of a website, besides the web statistics your web hosting server may have generated.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

When you purchase a shared hosting from us, you will be able to determine if access logs should be created and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You'll be able to enable this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts. Every single domain name you host or subdomain you set up will be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each one of them, so you can easily trigger or disable the generation of access logs separately for every site that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link that you shall see inside the same section of the CP. The link shall be available even if you deactivate the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data gathered by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your sites inside a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will have the option to enable or deactivate the generation of access logs with no more than several mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting CP. You will find this feature within the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access after you sign in. All it takes for our system to start creating logs is one click on the On button which you will see there. The feature can be triggered individually for any website regardless of whether it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you will find a full list of all the hosts within that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with simply a click and you could then see it manually or use some software on your personal computer. The log generation could be stopped by simply switching the On option to Off inside the Logs section of your CP.
