An access log is a thorough list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a given Internet site. Any file that was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have only one page with 3 embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for each of the six files which were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log usually contains the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s OS, worldwide web browser and IP address. Sometimes you may also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your website. The information that an access log file includes 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 functionality of a website, besides the web statistics which your hosting server may have created.
Access Log Manager in Shared Website Hosting
If you pick one of our shared website hosting solutions, you shall get in-depth access logs for all your websites. As soon as you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should check out the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a thorough list of the domain names and subdomains that you have added or created within the web hosting account. You will simply have to click on the On button, which is found on the right-hand side of each hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs right away. To stop this function, you will need to follow the same exact steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains could be handled separately and anytime.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our leading-edge website hosting platform shall create access logs for each and every website hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, provided that this function is activated. All domain names and subdomains that you have shall be listed in the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, that we provide with all of the accounts, so if you'd like our system to start creating logs for each of them, you should just click on the compact button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You can deactivate this feature anytime by following the very same steps. You can find a Download link for each and every log in the very same section of the Control Panel, so you can save the content generated by our system in .txt format with just a mouse click. An existing log file can be downloaded even after the feature has been deactivated, so you will still be able to see the data which has already been generated.
