An access log contains a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while browsing your site. The list is thorough, so when you have a page with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log normally contains the date, the Operating System, the browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the hottest files on your website. The log, that is also frequently called "raw data", is an addition to the web data that you commonly get with a hosting account, not a substitute. An example why you might need such a log is if you want to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s performance, but you don't want to use the standard graphs and tables that come with the server-generated website stats.

Access Log Manager in Web Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be very easy if you acquire a web hosting from us. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, supplied with all of the accounts, features a section on different logs which is where you shall find the access logs as well. When you go there, you will see a list of all the domains hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform will start creating an access log for any of them the instant you click on the On button, that you will see on the right. If you no longer need logs, disabling the option is just as easy and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button inside the same section. All of the logs are downloadable, which means that you can conveniently save and manage them on your desktop computer or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it shall not take more than a couple of clicks to permit the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The feature could be permitted through the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and this can be done individually for every single domain or subdomain you have inside your account. Once you log in and look at 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. A single click shall trigger the log generation and another one shall disable it, so you can control this feature with great ease. A Download link within the same section will allow you to save the compiled content as a text file, that you could then use on your laptop or computer. Whether or not the logs are deactivated, you'll still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
