An access log features a record of all files which have been requested by the visitors while exploring your Internet site. The list is comprehensive, so when you have a page with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log normally contains the date, the Operating System, the 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, that's also often named "raw data", is an addition to the web stats you commonly get with a hosting account, not an alternative. An illustration why you might need this type of a log is if you wish to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you don't want to use the typical graphs and tables that come with the server-generated site stats.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting

When you acquire a cloud website hosting from our company, you will be able to determine if access logs have to be created 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 Control Panel, incorporated with all shared accounts. Every domain you host or subdomain you set up will be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can conveniently enable or deactivate the generation of access logs independently for each site that you have. You may save a log to your personal computer by clicking on the Download link that you shall see in the same section of the CP. The link is available even after you deactivate the log generation, so you will still have access to the data gathered by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your Internet sites within a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will have the option to trigger or disable the generation of access logs with only a few clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will find this function 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 click on the On button you'll see there. The function can be triggered separately for any Internet site no matter if it uses a domain or a subdomain and you shall find a complete list of all the hosts in that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with just a click and you could then see it manually or use some software on your laptop or computer. The log generation could be disabled by simply switching the On option to Off inside the Logs section of your CP.
