An access log includes a record of all the files that have been requested by the visitors while browsing your site. The list is thorough, so in case you have a page with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log usually contains the date, the OS, the web browser and the IP address for every single file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most popular files on your website. The log, that is also frequently named "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics that you commonly get with a hosting account, not a substitute. A good example why you could need this kind of a log is if you want to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s general 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 Website Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be extremely simple if you acquire a website hosting from our company. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, provided with all the accounts, has a section on different logs and this is where you shall find the access logs too. As soon as you go there, you shall see a list of all the domains hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform shall start generating an access log for any of them when you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you no longer require logs, disabling the option is just as fast and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button in the exact same section. All of the logs are downloadable, therefore you can effortlessly save and manage them on your desktop PC or notebook.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your sites within a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will have the option to trigger or disable the generation of access logs with just a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will find this feature in the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access after you sign in. All it takes for our system to start creating logs is one click on the On button which you can see there. The function can be enabled independently for any site regardless of whether it uses a domain or a subdomain and you will find a detailed list of all the hosts in that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with a click and you may 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 in the Logs section of your CP.
