An access log features a record of all the files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your site. The list is comprehensive, so in case you have a web page with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log typically includes the date, the Operating System, the Internet browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the most well liked files on your Internet site. The log, that is also often called "raw data", is an addition to the web data you usually get with a hosting account, not a substitute. An illustration why you may need this sort of a log is if you wish to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s general performance, but you don't want to use the regular graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web statistics.

Access Log Manager in Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be incredibly simple when you purchase a hosting from us. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all the accounts, features a section on different logs and that is where you'll find the access logs as well. As you navigate there, you'll see a list of all the domains hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform shall start producing an access log for each of them as early as you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you no longer need logs, disabling the option is just as easy and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button in the same section. All of the logs are downloadable, so you can easily save and manage them on your desktop PC or notebook.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it won't take more than a few mouse clicks to trigger the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The feature can be enabled via the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this could be done independently for every single domain or subdomain you have inside your account. As soon as you log in and visit the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you'll discover a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to every one of them. One click will activate the log generation and a second one shall deactivate it, so you can control this function with great ease. A Download link inside the same section will allow you to save the compiled content as a text file, which you can then use on your PC. Whether or not the logs are disabled, you shall still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
