An access log features a record of all of the files which have been requested by the visitors while browsing your Internet site. The list is detailed, so when you have a webpage with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically features the date, the OS, 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 well liked files on your website. The log, which is also typically named "raw data", is an addition to the web data that you usually get with a hosting account, not a substitute. An illustration why you might need this kind of a log is if you intend to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s general performance, but you don't want to use the typical graphs and tables which come with the server-generated site statistics.

Access Log Manager in Shared Website Hosting

Our custom-built Hepsia CP includes a section dedicated to various logs and the access logs are among them. As you sign in to your shared website hosting account and visit this section, you will find a list of all the domain names and subdomains you have. All it takes to allow the generation of access logs is to click on a button that will be available next to each and every domain/subdomain. In case the option is active, you will see a download link along with the file size so far, so you'll be able to save the file to your computer and examine it or process it with some program. Enabling or disabling the logs becomes effective immediately, so if you don't require one, you may stop it with just a mouse click from the same exact section of the CP. You'll still be able to access the already developed content by simply clicking on the Download link.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it shall not take more than a few clicks to enable the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The function may be activated through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this can be done separately for each and every domain name or subdomain that you have within your account. As soon as you log in and go to the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you'll discover a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each of them. A single click will enable the log generation and a second one shall deactivate it, so you can control this function with great efficiency. A Download link inside the same section will allow you to save the compiled content as a text file, that you could then use on your computer. Whether or not the logs are deactivated, you'll still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
