An access log is a thorough list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a given website. Every file that was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have only one page with 3 embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for every of the 6 files which were accessed when the website visitor opened the webpage. A log typically provides the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s OS, Internet browser and IP address. Sometimes you may also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your site. The info an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to prepare reports on the efficiency of a website, independent of the web statistics which your web hosting server may have generated.

Access Log Manager in Shared Web Hosting

If you pick one of our shared web hosting packages, you'll get thorough access logs for your websites. Once you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a full list of the domains and subdomains which you have added or created in the web hosting account. You will simply need to click on the On button, which is located on the right-hand side of every hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs immediately. To stop this function, you will need to follow the same exact steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be handled independently and anytime. You will find a download link within the Logs section of the CP for any log created by our system, so you're able to save the file to your desktop or notebook and view it or use it through some log processing software.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your sites inside a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will have the option to trigger or disable the generation of access logs with no more than a couple of mouse clicks within your Hepsia hosting CP. You'll find this feature inside the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access once you sign in. All it takes for our system to start generating logs is a click on the On button you'll see there. The function can be enabled individually for any Internet site regardless of whether it uses a domain or a subdomain and you will find a full list of all the hosts inside that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with a click and you could then look at it manually or use some software on your laptop or computer. The log generation can be stopped by simply changing the On option to Off inside the Logs section of your Control Panel.
