An access log contains a record of all files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your Internet site. The list is comprehensive, so in case you have a web page with 2 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 OS, the Internet browser and the IP address for every single file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the hottest files on your site. The log, that is also frequently named "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics that you commonly get with a hosting account, not a substitute. An example why you might need this type of a log is if you wish 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 typical graphs and tables that come with the server-generated site stats.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

If you obtain a shared hosting from us, you'll be able to choose if access logs must be created and for which domains or subdomains in your account this should be done. You may enable this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, incorporated with all shared accounts. Each and every domain name you host or subdomain you set up will be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to each of them, so you can conveniently enable or deactivate the generation of access logs individually for each site that you have. You could save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link that you shall see inside the exact same section of the Control Panel. The link will be available even if you disable the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data gathered by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our advanced website hosting platform shall create access logs for any website hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this feature is activated. All domain names and subdomains that you have will be listed inside the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, that we provide with all the accounts, so if you'd like our system to start creating logs for any of them, you should just click on the little button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You'll be able to stop this function whenever you want by following the very same steps. You can find a Download link for each log within the same section of the CP, so you may save the content gathered by our system in .txt format with no more than a click. An existing log file can be downloaded even after the feature has been deactivated, so you will still be able to see the data that's already been generated.
