An access log includes a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while browsing your Internet site. The list is detailed, so when you have a web page with 2 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 browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most popular files on your site. The log, that's also often called "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics which you usually get with a hosting account, not an alternative. One example why you might 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 do not want to use the conventional graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web statistics.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting

If you buy a cloud web hosting from us, you'll be able to choose if access logs have to be produced and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You can enable this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, integrated with all shared accounts. Every domain name you host or subdomain you set up shall be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can easily enable or disable the generation of access logs separately for each site that you have. You may save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link that you'll see in 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 Hosting

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