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

As soon as you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see an extensive list of the domains and subdomains you have added or created inside the hosting account. You'll only have to click on the On button, that is located on the right-hand side of each and every hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs at once. To disable this feature, you'll need to follow the same exact steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains could be handled separately and at any time. You will find a download link within the Logs section of the CP for every log created by our system, so you can save the file to your personal computer and view it or use it via some log processing software.
