An access log is a detailed list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a certain Internet site. Every file that was requested for some reason shall be listed, so if you have just one webpage with three embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for any of the six files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the webpage. A log usually offers the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s Operating System, browser and IP address. Occasionally you could also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your website. The information an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to write reports on the performance of an Internet site, independent of the web stats your server may have created.
Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting
If you get a shared hosting from us, you'll be able to determine if access logs should be created and for which domains or subdomains in your account this should be done. You could activate this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, included with all shared accounts. Each and every domain you host or subdomain you set up will be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to every one of them, so you can easily activate or disable the generation of access logs individually for each site that you have. You could save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link that you will see inside the exact same section of the CP. The link will be 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
You will be able to view detailed access logs for any site that you host within a semi-dedicated server account set up on our revolutionary website hosting platform. Our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel will enable you to activate the function for each and every domain or subdomain in the account individually, so that you can get logs only for the sites you need. Once you sign in, you can navigate to the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a list of all the domain names and subdomains that you have added or created and an On/Off button on the right side of each one of them. Activating or deactivating the generation of access logs is as elementary as clicking on this button and the change shall take effect at once. You can easily save the logs in .txt format by clicking on the Download link in the very same section. The latter shall be available all of the time, even if you disable the feature for a specific domain address or subdomain.
