An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a particular Internet site. Every single file which 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, as an illustration, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for each of the 6 files which were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log usually offers the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s Operating System, browser and IP address. In some cases you could also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your website. The info that an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to write reports on the efficiency of an Internet site, in addition to the web statistics which your server may have created.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

If you order a cloud hosting from us, you'll be able to decide if access logs must be created and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You'll be able to enable this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all shared accounts. Every single domain name you host or subdomain you set up shall be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can conveniently trigger or deactivate the generation of access logs separately for every site that you have. You can save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link that you shall see inside the same exact section of the Control Panel. The link is available even if you deactivate the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data gathered by our system.

Our sophisticated hosting platform will create access logs for every Internet site hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as long as this function is activated.

You'll be able to stop this feature whenever you want by following the exact same steps. You'll find a Download link for each log in the same exact section of the Control Panel, so you will be able to save the content gathered by our system in .txt format with simply a click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the option has been deactivated, so you will still be able to see the data that's already been generated.
