An access log is a complete list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a certain site. Every file that was requested in some way shall be listed, so if you have a single page with 3 embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the 6 files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the page. A log usually offers the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s OS, web browser and IP address. Occasionally you can also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The data an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a PC and used to write reports on the functionality of an Internet site, besides the web statistics that your web hosting server may have generated.

Access Log Manager in Web Hosting

Our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel features a section focused on various logs and the access logs are among them. As soon as you sign in to your web hosting account and navigate to this section, you'll find a list of all the domains and subdomains you have. All it takes to permit the generation of access logs is to click on a button which will be available next to every single domain/subdomain. When the option is enabled, you'll see a download link along with the file size so far, so you will be able to save the file to your PC and view it or process it with some application. Enabling or disabling the logs becomes effective right away, so if you no longer need one, you'll be able to stop it with only a mouse click from the same exact section of the CP. You will still be able to access the already created content by simply clicking on the Download link.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our advanced website hosting platform shall generate access logs for every single website hosted within a semi-dedicated server account, as long as this function is enabled. All domains and subdomains that you have shall be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, that we offer with all the accounts, so if you would like our system to start creating logs for each of them, you should just click on the little button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You can stop this function anytime by following the very same steps. You will find a Download link for each log in the exact same section of the CP, so you can save the content gathered by our system in .txt format with simply a mouse click. An existing log file could be downloaded even after the feature has been disabled, so you will still be able to view the data that has already been generated.
