An access log features a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while browsing your Internet site. The list is thorough, so if you have a web 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 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 website. The log, that is also typically called "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics which you commonly get with a hosting account, not an alternative. An example why you may require this kind of a log is if you intend to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s general performance, but you don't want to use the conventional graphs and tables which come with the server-generated website statistics.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

If you order a cloud hosting from us, you shall be able to decide if access logs must be created and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You can activate this feature 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 will see an On/Off option next to each of them, so you can effortlessly enable or disable the generation of access logs individually for every single website that you have. You can save a log to your personal computer by clicking on the Download link you'll see inside the same section of the Control Panel. The link will be available even after you disable the log generation, so you will still have access to the data collected by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it will not take more than several clicks to activate the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The function could be permitted through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this can be done separately for each and every domain or subdomain which you have in your account. Whenever you log in and check out the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you will discover a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each of them. A single click shall enable the log generation and a second one will deactivate it, so you can control this function with great efficiency. A Download link in the same section will enable you to save the created content as a text file, which you can then use on your laptop or computer. Even if the logs are disabled, you'll still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
