An access log contains a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your site. The list is comprehensive, so when you have a web page with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log typically includes the date, the OS, the Internet browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most popular files on your site. The log, which is also frequently named "raw data", is an addition to the web data that you typically get with a hosting account, not a replacement. A good example why you might need this kind of a log is if you intend to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s general performance, but you don't want to use the typical 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 really simple if you acquire a shared hosting from us. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all the accounts, has a section on different logs and this is where you shall find the access logs too. As soon as you go there, you shall see a list of all the domain names hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform will start generating an access log for any of them as soon as you click on the On button, that you will see on the right. If you no longer require logs, disabling the option is just as simple and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button within the exact same section. All of the logs are downloadable, which means that you can easily save and manage them on your desktop computer or notebook.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our sophisticated hosting platform shall generate access logs for any Internet site hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this feature is activated. All domain names and subdomains that you have will be listed inside the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which we supply with all of the accounts, so if you'd like our system to start generating logs for any of them, you should just click on the small button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You'll be able to deactivate this feature at any time by following the same steps. You will find a Download link for each and every log within the same exact section of the Control Panel, so you can easily save the content gathered by our system in .txt format with no more than a mouse click. An existing log file can be downloaded even after the function has been deactivated, so you'll still be able to view the data that has already been generated.
