An access log is a thorough list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a given website. Every file that was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have just one page with three embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the 6 files that were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log typically shows the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s Operating System, worldwide web browser and IP address. Sometimes you can also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your website. The data an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to prepare reports on the functionality of a site, independent of the web stats that your server may have generated.

If you opt for one of our web hosting plans, you shall get detailed access logs for your Internet sites. As soon as you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you should check out the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see a complete list of the domains and subdomains which you have added or created within the hosting account. You'll simply have to click on the On button, which is situated on the right-hand side of every hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs right away. To disable this function, you'll have to follow the same exact steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains could be handled independently and anytime. You can find a download link in the Logs section of the Control Panel for every log created by our system, so you're able to save the file to your personal computer and view it or use it via some log processing software.

After you log in and go to the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you'll see a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to all of them. One click will activate the log generation and a second one shall disable it, so you can control this function with great ease.

Even when the logs are deactivated, you will still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
