An access log contains a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while browsing your site. The list is detailed, so in case 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 normally contains the date, the Operating System, the Internet 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, which is also often named "raw data", is an addition to the web data you commonly get with a hosting account, not a substitute. An example why you may need such a log is if you intend to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s performance, but you don't want to use the regular graphs and tables which come with the server-generated site statistics.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be incredibly easy when you get a shared hosting from our company. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all the accounts, features a section dedicated to different logs which is where you'll find the access logs too. As soon as you go there, you shall 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 any of them as early as you click on the On button, that you will see on the right. If you don't need logs, disabling the option is just as simple and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button inside the very same section. All of the logs are downloadable, which means that you can easily save and manage them on your PC or notebook.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our advanced website hosting platform will generate access logs for each and every Internet site hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, provided that this feature is activated. All domains and subdomains that you have shall be listed inside the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which we supply with all of the accounts, so if you need our system to start creating logs for each of them, you should simply click on the little button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You can deactivate this feature anytime by following the exact same steps. You will find a Download link for every single log inside the same section of the CP, so you can save the content generated by our system in .txt format with no more than a mouse click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the function has been deactivated, so you will still be able to see the data that's already been generated.
