An access log includes a record of all of the files that have been requested by the visitors while browsing your site. The list is comprehensive, so when you have a page with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log normally features the date, the OS, 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 site. The log, that is also frequently named "raw data", is an addition to the web data which you commonly get with a hosting account, not a replacement. An example why you may need this kind of a log is if you would like 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 that come with the server-generated site stats.

Access Log Manager in Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be extremely simple when you buy a hosting from our company. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, provided with all of the accounts, features a section dedicated to different logs and that is where you shall find the access logs too. As you navigate there, you'll see a list of all the domains hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform shall start creating an access log for any of them when 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 easy and can be done by clicking on the Off button in the exact same section. All of the logs are downloadable, which means that you can conveniently save and manage them on your desktop PC or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it shall not take more than a couple of clicks to trigger the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The function may be enabled via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this can be done independently for every single domain or subdomain which you have inside your account. When you log in and look at the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you will find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each one. A single click shall activate the log generation and another one will deactivate it, so you can control this feature with great efficiency. A Download link in the same section will allow you to save the compiled content as a text file, that you can then use on your PC. Even when the logs are disabled, you'll still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
