An access log contains a record of all files which have been requested by the visitors while browsing your Internet site. The list is comprehensive, so if you have a web page with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log typically features the date, the Operating System, the web browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the hottest files on your website. The log, which is also often named "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics which you commonly get with a hosting account, not a replacement. A good example why you may need such a log is if you would like to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you do not want to use the conventional graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web stats.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

If you acquire a cloud hosting from our company, you'll be able to determine if access logs have to be generated and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You may enable this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all shared accounts. Each domain name you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can effortlessly activate or disable the generation of access logs individually for every site that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your personal computer by clicking on the Download link that you will see inside the very same section of the CP. The link will be available even after you stop the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data collected by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it won't take more than a few clicks to trigger the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The function could be enabled through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this can be done separately for each and every domain name or subdomain you have in your account. As soon as you log in and go to the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you'll find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each of them. One click will trigger the log generation and a second one shall disable it, so you can control this feature with great ease. A Download link in the same section will enable you to save the created content as a text file, that you could then use on your computer. Even if the logs are disabled, you'll still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
