An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a given Internet site. Each and every file that was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have a single page with three embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the six files that were accessed when the website visitor opened the webpage. A log usually contains the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s OS, browser and IP address. Sometimes you may also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your site. The information which an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to write reports on the efficiency of a site, aside from the web statistics your web hosting server may have generated.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

If you opt for one of our shared hosting plans, you will get comprehensive access logs for your websites. When you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you should check out the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see a thorough list of the domains and subdomains which you have added or created in the hosting account. You will simply need to click on the On button, which is situated on the right-hand side of every hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs at once. To stop this feature, you will have to follow the exact same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be handled individually and at any time. You can find a download link within the Logs section of the Control Panel for any log generated by our system, allowing you to save the file to your computer system and view it or use it via some log processing software.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your sites within a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall have the option to trigger or deactivate the generation of access logs with no more than a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting CP. You shall find this function 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 that you can see there. The function can be activated separately for any site regardless of whether it uses a domain or a subdomain and you'll find a detailed list of all the hosts in that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with only a click and you could then see it manually or use some software on your personal computer. The log generation could be stopped by simply changing the On option to Off inside the Logs section of your Control Panel.
