An access log features a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while browsing your site. The list is thorough, 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 contains the date, the Operating System, the web browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the most popular files on your website. The log, that is also often referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web data you commonly get with a hosting account, not a substitute. One example why you may require this kind 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 web statistics.

Access Log Manager in Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be very simple if you purchase a hosting from us. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, supplied with all of the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs and this is where you'll find the access logs as well. When you navigate there, you will see a list of all the domains hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform will start generating an access log for each 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 fast and can be done by clicking on the Off button inside the very same section. All the logs are downloadable, which means that you can easily save and manage them on your desktop PC or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your sites inside a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will have the option to activate or disable the generation of access logs with only a few clicks from 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 producing logs is a single click on the On button you'll see there. The feature can be triggered individually for any site regardless if it uses a domain or a subdomain and you'll find the complete list of all the hosts in that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with a click and you could then look at it manually or use some software on your computer. The log generation can be stopped by simply switching the On option to Off inside the Logs section of your Control Panel.
