An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a particular website. Every file which was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have one webpage with three embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the six files which were accessed when the website visitor opened the webpage. A log normally offers the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s OS, web browser and IP address. Sometimes you can also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your site. The data that an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to write reports on the efficiency of a website, aside from the web statistics that your web hosting server may have generated.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting

If you order a cloud website hosting from our company, you'll be able to decide if access logs must be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You could activate this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all shared accounts. Any domain you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to every one of them, so you can effortlessly activate or deactivate the generation of access logs independently for each site that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link you'll see inside the very same section of the Control Panel. The link will be available even after you deactivate the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data gathered by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it won't take more than a few mouse clicks to permit the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The function could be activated from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and this could be done individually for each and every domain or subdomain that you have inside your account. Whenever you log in and check out the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you'll find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each one. A single click will trigger the log generation and another one will disable it, so you can control this feature with great comfort. A Download link within the same section will allow you to save the gathered content as a text file, that you could then use on your PC. Whether or not the logs are disabled, you'll still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
