An access log is a thorough list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a particular website. Every single file that was requested for some reason shall be listed, so if you have just one page with three embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for every of the six files which were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log normally provides the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s Operating System, Internet browser and IP address. Occasionally you may also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your website. The information which an access log file features is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a PC and used to prepare reports on the efficiency of a site, aside from the web stats that your hosting server may have produced.

Access Log Manager in Web Hosting

When you order a web hosting from our company, you shall be able to choose if access logs must be created and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You could enable this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, integrated with all shared accounts. Each and every domain name you host or subdomain you set up will be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to every one of them, so you can effortlessly enable or deactivate the generation of access logs individually for every single website that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your personal computer by clicking on the Download link that you will see within the same exact section of the Control Panel. The link is available even if you deactivate the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data collected by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our leading-edge web hosting platform shall create access logs for each and every website hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, provided that this function is permitted. All domain names and subdomains that you have will be listed in the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, that we provide with all of the accounts, so if you'd like our system to start producing logs for each of them, you should simply click on the compact button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You could deactivate this function anytime by following exactly the same steps. You will find a Download link for each and every log inside the very same section of the Control Panel, so you may save the content generated by our system in .txt format with just a click. An existing log file can be downloaded even after the function has been deactivated, so you'll still be able to view the data which has already been generated.
