An access log includes a record of all files which have been requested by the visitors while exploring your site. The list is thorough, so in case you have a webpage with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log normally includes the date, the Operating System, the web browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most well liked files on your site. The log, which is also typically referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web stats which you usually get with a hosting account, not a replacement. A good 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 functionality, but you do not want to use the standard graphs and tables which come with the server-generated website stats.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting

When you purchase a cloud website hosting from us, you'll be able to determine if access logs have to be created and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You can enable this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts. Any domain you host or subdomain you set up shall be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each one of them, so you can effortlessly trigger or disable the generation of access logs separately for every site that you have. You may save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link you'll see inside the same exact section of the CP. The link will be available even after you stop the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data gathered by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it shall not take more than several mouse clicks to permit the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The feature could be enabled via the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this could be done independently for each domain or subdomain that you have inside your account. As soon as you log in and check out the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you'll discover a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to every one of them. One click shall trigger the log generation and a second one shall deactivate it, so you can control this function with great simplicity. A Download link inside the same section will allow you to save the generated content as a text file, that you could then use on your personal computer. Even when the logs are disabled, you will still be able to download the data that has been previously generated.
