An access log features a record of all files which have been requested by the visitors while browsing your website. The list is thorough, so if you have a page with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log normally features the date, the OS, the browser and the IP address for 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 often called "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics which you normally get with a hosting account, not a substitute. One example why you may require this sort 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 do not want to use the standard graphs and tables which come with the server-generated web statistics.

Access Log Manager in Shared Web Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be exceptionally easy when you buy a shared web hosting from us. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, supplied with all the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs and that is where you shall find the access logs too. Once you navigate there, you'll see a list of all the domain names hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform shall start creating an access log for each of them the instant 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 quick and can be done by clicking on the Off button in the very same section. All the logs are downloadable, so you can conveniently save and manage them on your desktop computer or notebook.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall have the option to trigger or deactivate the generation of access logs with no more than a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You'll find this feature inside the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access once you sign in. All it takes for our system to start creating logs is a single click on the On button which you will see there. The feature can be activated individually for any site regardless if it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you shall find the complete list of all the hosts in that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with only a click and you can then see it manually or use some software on your PC. The log generation can be disabled by simply switching the On option to Off within the Logs section of your CP.
