An access log features a record of all of the files that have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your website. The list is comprehensive, so in case you have a webpage with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log usually includes the date, the OS, the Internet browser and the IP address for every single file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the hottest files on your website. The log, that's also frequently called "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics that you typically get with a hosting account, not a replacement. A good example why you may require this sort of a log is if you want to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you don't want to use the conventional graphs and tables which come with the server-generated site statistics.

Access Log Manager in Web Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be extremely simple when you buy 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 too. As soon as you go there, you shall see a list of all the domains hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform shall start creating an access log for each of them the instant you click on the On button, that you will see on the right. If you don't need logs, disabling the option is just as easy and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button in the same exact section. All the logs are downloadable, which means that you can conveniently save and manage them on your desktop PC or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it won't take more than several mouse clicks to activate the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The function may be activated through the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this may be done individually for every single domain or subdomain you have within your account. Whenever you log in and visit the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you'll 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 shall deactivate it, so you can control this feature with great simplicity. A Download link within the same section will allow you to save the compiled content as a text file, which you can then use on your laptop or computer. Even when the logs are disabled, you shall still be able to download the data that has been previously generated.
