An access log is a thorough list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a given Internet site. Every file that was requested for some reason shall be listed, so if you have just one webpage with three embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the six files that were accessed when the website visitor opened the webpage. A log typically provides the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s Operating System, web browser and IP address. In some cases you can also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your site. The information that an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to write reports on the functionality of an Internet site, independent of the web statistics which your web hosting server may have generated.

Access Log Manager in Hosting

When you order a hosting from us, you will be able to determine if access logs should be generated and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You may enable this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, included with all shared accounts. Every single domain name you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each one of them, so you can quickly enable or deactivate the generation of access logs separately for every single website that you have. You could save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link that you shall see in the same exact section of the CP. The link shall be available even after you stop the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data collected by our system.

You'll be able to check out in depth access logs for any website that you host within a semi-dedicated server account set up on our progressive hosting platform.

Once you sign in, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a list of all the domain addresses and subdomains that you have added or created and an On/Off button on the right side of every one of them. Triggering or disabling the generation of access logs is as basic as clicking on this button and the change shall take effect straight away. You may save the logs in .txt format by clicking on the Download link situated in the very same section. The latter will be available all of the time, even after you deactivate the function for a certain domain name or subdomain.
