An access log contains a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your website. The list is thorough, so in case you have a webpage with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log normally features the date, the Operating System, the web browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the hottest files on your Internet site. The log, that's also often referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web stats which you normally get with a hosting account, not an alternative. One example why you could need this type of a log is if you would like to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s performance, but you do not want to use the regular graphs and tables which come with the server-generated website stats.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be incredibly simple when you purchase a shared hosting from our company. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which comes with all of the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs which is where you'll find the access logs as well. Once you navigate there, you shall see a list of all the domain names hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform shall start producing an access log for any of them as soon as you click on the On button, which you'll 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 inside the same section. All of the logs are downloadable, therefore you can comfortably save and manage them on your PC or notebook.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it will not take more than a couple of mouse clicks to activate the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The function may be activated from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this can be done individually for each domain name or subdomain which you have inside your account. After you log in and go to the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you'll find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each one. A single click shall enable the log generation and a second one shall disable it, so you can control this function with great ease. A Download link within the same section will allow you to save the gathered content as a text file, that you can then use on your personal computer. Even if the logs are deactivated, you shall still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
