An access log contains a record of all the files that have been requested by the visitors while browsing your Internet site. The list is detailed, so when you have a page with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log normally includes the date, the OS, 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 well liked files on your Internet site. The log, that's also often called "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics that you typically get with a hosting account, not an alternative. A good example why you may need such a log is if you would like to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you don't want to use the standard graphs and tables which come with the server-generated website stats.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be very simple when you get a shared hosting from our company. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, included with all the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs and that is where you shall find the access logs too. As you navigate there, you shall see a list of all the domain names hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform shall start generating an access log for any of them as early as you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you don't require logs, disabling the option is just as fast and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button inside the exact same section. All the logs are downloadable, so you can easily save and manage them on your PC or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your websites inside a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall have the option to enable or deactivate the generation of access logs with just a couple of clicks from your Hepsia hosting CP. You shall find this feature within the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access once you sign in. All it takes for our system to start producing logs is a single click on the On button that you can see there. The function can be enabled separately for any Internet site no matter if it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you shall find a complete list of all the hosts in that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with simply a click and you could then view it manually or use some software on your personal computer. The log generation could be deactivated by simply changing the On option to Off in the Logs section of your CP.
