An access log contains a record of all the files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your Internet site. The list is comprehensive, so when you have a webpage with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log usually includes the date, the Operating System, the web browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the hottest files on your website. The log, that is also typically named "raw data", is an addition to the web data you commonly get with a hosting account, not an alternative. A good example why you could need such a log is if you would like to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you don't want to use the conventional graphs and tables that come with the server-generated website stats.

Access Log Manager in Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be exceptionally easy when you purchase a hosting from us. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, supplied with all of the accounts, features a section dedicated to different logs which is where you will find the access logs too. When you go there, you shall see a list of all the domains hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform will start producing an access log for any 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 same exact section. All the logs are downloadable, so you can comfortably save and manage them on your PC or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it will not take more than a few mouse clicks to activate the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The feature can be permitted from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and this could be done separately for every single domain or subdomain you have in your account. When you log in and check out 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. One click shall activate the log generation and a second one shall deactivate it, so you can control this feature with great efficiency. A Download link inside the same section will permit you to save the compiled content as a text file, which you could then use on your notebook or computer. Even when the logs are deactivated, you will still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
