An access log contains a record of all of the files which have been requested by the visitors while exploring your Internet site. The list is comprehensive, so in case you have a page with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log typically contains the date, the Operating System, the browser and the IP address for every 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, which is also typically referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web stats that you typically get with a hosting account, not a replacement. One example why you may need such a log is if you want to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s general performance, but you do not want to use the typical graphs and tables which come with the server-generated web statistics.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

If you get a cloud hosting from our company, you shall be able to choose if access logs have to be produced and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You can activate this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, incorporated with all shared accounts. Each domain you host or subdomain you create shall be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can quickly enable or deactivate the generation of access logs independently for every single website that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link you'll see in the exact same section of the Control Panel. The link will be available even after you stop the log generation, so you will still have access to the data collected by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it will not take more than a few mouse clicks to trigger the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The function may be enabled through the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and this can be done individually for each and every domain or subdomain that you have in your account. When you log in and check out the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you will see a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to all of them. A single click will trigger the log generation and a second one will disable it, so you can control this feature with great simplicity. A Download link within the same section will enable you to save the created content as a text file, which you could then use on your laptop or computer. Even if the logs are disabled, you will still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
