An access log includes a record of all of the files which have been requested by the visitors while exploring your Internet site. The list is detailed, so in case you have a page with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically contains the date, the OS, the Internet browser and the IP address for each 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 stats which you commonly get with a hosting account, not a substitute. A good example why you may need this kind of a log is if you would like to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s performance, but you do not want to use the conventional graphs and tables which come with the server-generated site statistics.

Access Log Manager in Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be exceptionally simple if you buy a hosting from our company. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, included with all of the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs and that is where you shall find the access logs as well. When you navigate there, you will see a list of all the domains hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform will start creating an access log for each of them the instant you click on the On button, which you'll see on the right. If you don't need logs, disabling the option is just as quick and can be done by clicking on the Off button in the same section. All of the logs are downloadable, which means that you can easily save and manage them on your desktop PC or notebook.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will have the option to enable or disable the generation of access logs with no more than several clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You'll find this function inside the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access after you sign in. All it takes for our system to start generating logs is a single click on the On button that you'll see there. The feature can be enabled separately for any site regardless if it uses a domain or a subdomain and you will find the complete list of all the hosts inside that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with a click and you can then see it manually or use some software on your personal computer. The log generation could be disabled by simply changing the On option to Off within the Logs section of your CP.
