An access log is a complete list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a certain website. Every single file that was requested in some way shall be listed, so if you have only one webpage with 3 embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for any of the six files which were accessed when the website visitor opened the webpage. A log normally provides the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s OS, web browser and IP address. Sometimes you could also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The data an access log file features is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to prepare reports on the functionality of an Internet site, independent of the web statistics which your hosting server may have created.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting
When you choose one of our cloud website hosting solutions, you shall get in-depth access logs for your Internet sites. Once you sign in to your Hepsia CP, 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 hosting account. You'll only have to click on the On button, which is located on the right-hand side of each hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs at once. To stop this feature, you'll have to follow the exact same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be managed separately and anytime. You'll find a download link in the Logs section of the CP for every log generated by our system, so you can save the file to your computer system and view it or use it via some log processing software.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your Internet sites inside a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall have the option to activate or deactivate the generation of access logs with no more than a few clicks within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

All it takes for our system to start generating logs is a click on the On button that you will see there. The function can be activated separately for any website regardless if it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you will find a detailed list of all the hosts inside that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with simply a click and you can then see it manually or use some software on your personal computer. The log generation can be disabled by simply switching the On option to Off inside the Logs section of your Control Panel.
