An access log is a complete list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a particular website. Each and every file that was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have just one page with three embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for any of the 6 files that were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log typically offers the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s OS, Internet browser and IP address. Occasionally you could also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The information which an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to write reports on the efficiency of an Internet site, independent of the web stats which your hosting server may have produced.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our leading-edge hosting platform will generate access logs for each site hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this function is enabled. All domains and subdomains that you have shall be listed in the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, that we provide with all the accounts, so if you'd like our system to start generating logs for any of them, you should simply click on the small button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You can stop this feature whenever you want by following the very same steps. You'll find a Download link for each and every log in the same exact section of the Control Panel, so you may save the content generated by our system in .txt format with simply a click. An existing log file can be downloaded even after the option has been disabled, so you will still be able to look at the data that has already been generated.
