An access log is a thorough list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a certain Internet site. Any file which was requested in some way shall be listed, so if you have just one webpage with three embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, 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 page. A log normally shows the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s Operating System, browser and IP address. Oftentimes you could also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The data which an access log file includes 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 an Internet site, aside from the web statistics your server may have created.

Access Log Manager in Hosting

When you get a hosting from our company, you will be able to determine if access logs have to be generated and for which domains or subdomains in your account this should be done. You could enable this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, integrated with all shared accounts. Every single domain you host or subdomain you set up shall be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each of them, so you can quickly activate or disable the generation of access logs independently for each website that you have. You could save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link that you'll see within the same section of the CP. The link will be available even if you stop the log generation, so you will still have access to the data gathered by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our sophisticated website hosting platform shall create access logs for any website hosted within a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this function is activated. All domains and subdomains that you have will be listed inside the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which we supply with all the accounts, so if you need our system to start producing logs for any of them, you should simply click on the small button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You can disable this feature at any time by following exactly the same steps. You will find a Download link for every single log in the very same section of the CP, so you may save the content gathered by our system in .txt format with no more than a mouse click. An existing log file could be downloaded even after the option has been disabled, so you will still be able to view the data that has already been generated.
