An access log is a thorough list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a given site. Each and every file which was requested for whatever reason shall be listed, so if you have a single page with 3 embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for any of the six files that were accessed when the website visitor opened the webpage. A log normally contains the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s OS, worldwide web browser and IP address. Oftentimes you can also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your website. The info an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to prepare reports on the efficiency of an Internet site, independent of the web stats your hosting server may have produced.

After you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you can check out the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see an extensive list of the domain names and subdomains that you have added or created inside the hosting account. You'll simply need to click on the On button, that is situated on the right-hand side of each hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs straight away. To stop this function, you will need to follow the exact same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be managed separately and whenever you want. You can find a download link inside the Logs section of the Control Panel for every log created by our system, allowing you to save the file to your computer and view it or use it with some log processing software.
