An access log is a complete list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a particular site. Any file which was requested for whatever reason shall be listed, so if you have a single webpage with 3 embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for any of the six files which were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log usually shows the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s Operating System, worldwide web browser and IP address. Sometimes you could also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your site. The data an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to prepare reports on the overall performance of a website, in addition to the web stats that your web hosting server may have produced.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

If you opt for one of our shared hosting packages, you'll get thorough access logs for all of your sites. As soon as you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you can check out the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see a complete list of the domains and subdomains that you've added or created inside the hosting account. You'll simply have to click on the On button, that is found on the right-hand side of every hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs immediately. To stop this feature, you'll have to follow the very same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be handled independently and anytime. You can find a download link within the Logs section of the Control Panel for every log produced by our system, so you're able to save the file to your computer and view it or use it via some log processing software.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your sites inside a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll have the option to enable or disable the generation of access logs with just a couple of mouse clicks within your Hepsia hosting CP. You'll find this function within the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access as soon as you sign in. All it takes for our system to start producing logs is a click on the On button that you'll see there. The function can be triggered individually for any Internet site regardless if it uses a domain or a subdomain and you will find the complete list of all the hosts inside that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with only a click and you could then view it manually or use some software on your computer. The log generation could be disabled by simply switching the On option to Off within the Logs section of your CP.
