An access log includes a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while browsing your Internet site. The list is detailed, so when you have a web page with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log usually includes the date, the Operating System, the browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most well liked files on your Internet site. The log, that is also typically referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web stats that you commonly get with a hosting account, not a substitute. An example why you may require this type of a log is if you intend to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you don't want to use the regular graphs and tables which come with the server-generated web stats.

Access Log Manager in Shared Web Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be really easy when you acquire a shared web hosting from us. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, included with all of the accounts, features a section dedicated to different logs and this is where you will find the access logs too. As soon as you navigate there, you'll see a list of all the domains hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform shall start producing an access log for any of them as early as you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you don't require logs, disabling the option is just as quick and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button within the very same section. All the logs are downloadable, therefore you can comfortably save and manage them on your PC or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your websites inside a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall have the option to activate or deactivate the generation of access logs with just a few clicks within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You shall find this feature in the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access when you sign in. All it takes for our system to start generating logs is a click on the On button that you will see there. The function can be enabled separately for any site regardless if it uses a domain or a subdomain and you shall find a full list of all the hosts in that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with only a click and you may then see it manually or use some software on your laptop or computer. The log generation could be deactivated by simply switching the On option to Off in the Logs section of your Control Panel.
