An access log is a complete list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a given Internet site. Every file which was requested for whatever reason shall be listed, so if you have just one webpage with 3 embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, for example, 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 webpage. A log normally contains the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s Operating System, worldwide web browser and IP address. Occasionally you may also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your site. The information that an access log file features is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to prepare reports on the functionality of a website, in addition to the web statistics your server may have created.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

If you buy a shared hosting from our company, you shall be able to determine if access logs should be produced and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You may activate this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, integrated with all shared accounts. Every domain you host or subdomain you set up shall be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to every one of them, so you can easily activate or disable the generation of access logs independently for every single site that you have. You may save a log to your personal computer by clicking on the Download link that you'll see inside the same exact section of the CP. The link shall be available even if you stop the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data gathered by our system.

You shall be able to see detailed access logs for any site that you host inside a semi-dedicated server account set up on our revolutionary website hosting platform.

Triggering or deactivating the generation of access logs is as elementary as clicking on that button and the change shall take effect at once. You may save the logs in .txt format by clicking on the Download link situated in the same exact section. The latter shall be available all the time, even if you deactivate the function for a particular domain address or subdomain.
