An access log contains a record of all files which have been requested by the visitors while exploring your website. The list is thorough, so when you have a web page with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically includes the date, the Operating System, the Internet 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 site. The log, that is also frequently referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web data that you commonly get with a hosting account, not a replacement. A good example why you may need such a log is if you want to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you don't want to use the typical graphs and tables which come with the server-generated web statistics.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

If you buy a cloud hosting from us, you shall be able to choose if access logs have to be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You may enable this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, integrated with all shared accounts. Each domain you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to every one of them, so you can conveniently trigger or deactivate the generation of access logs independently for every single website that you have. You can save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link that you'll see in the exact same section of the Control Panel. The link will be available even if you stop the log generation, so you will still have access to the data gathered by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it will not take more than several mouse clicks to activate the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The feature can be enabled via the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this may be done separately for each and every domain or subdomain you have in your account. Once you log in and go to the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you'll see a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each of them. A single click will trigger the log generation and a second one will disable it, so you can control this function with great convenience. A Download link inside the same section will allow you to save the generated content as a text file, which you can then use on your laptop or computer. Whether or not the logs are disabled, you shall still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
