An access log features a record of all of the files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your Internet site. The list is detailed, so if you have a web page with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log normally contains the date, the OS, the browser and the IP address for every single file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most popular files on your Internet site. The log, that's also commonly called "raw data", is an addition to the web data which you normally get with a hosting account, not an alternative. An illustration why you could need this type of a log is if you intend to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s general performance, but you do not want to use the standard graphs and tables that come with the server-generated website stats.

Access Log Manager in Shared Website Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be exceptionally easy if you purchase a shared website hosting from us. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which comes with all the accounts, features a section on different logs which is where you will find the access logs too. Once you go there, you will see a list of all the domains hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform shall start generating an access log for any of them as soon as you click on the On button, that you will see on the right. If you no longer require logs, disabling the option is just as fast and can be done by clicking on the Off button in the very same section. All of the logs are downloadable, therefore you can conveniently save and manage them on your PC or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your websites within a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll have the option to activate or deactivate the generation of access logs with just several mouse clicks within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You'll find this function inside the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access as soon as you sign in. All it takes for our system to start generating logs is one click on the On button you'll see there. The function can be triggered independently for any site regardless if it uses a domain or a subdomain and you'll find the complete list of all the hosts inside that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with only a click and you could then look at it manually or use some software on your personal computer. The log generation could be disabled by simply changing the On option to Off within the Logs section of your Control Panel.
