An access log features a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while browsing your Internet site. The list is comprehensive, so if you have a webpage with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically features the date, the OS, the Internet browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the most well liked files on your website. The log, that is also commonly called "raw data", is an addition to the web data which you normally get with a hosting account, not an alternative. A good example why you may require this sort of a log is if you would like to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you do not want to use the regular graphs and tables which come with the server-generated site stats.

Access Log Manager in Hosting

If you order a hosting from us, you shall be able to decide if access logs have to be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You could enable this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts. Each and every domain you host or subdomain you create shall be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can quickly trigger or disable the generation of access logs separately for each site that you have. You may save a log to your personal computer by clicking on the Download link that you will see inside the very same section of the Control Panel. The link will be available even if 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

If you host your sites inside a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall have the option to trigger or disable the generation of access logs with just a few clicks within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You shall find this feature inside the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access when you sign in. All it takes for our system to start creating logs is a single click on the On button that you can see there. The feature can be enabled individually for any website regardless of whether it uses a domain or a subdomain and you'll find a complete list of all the hosts inside that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with simply a click and you can then look at it manually or use some software on your laptop or computer. The log generation can be deactivated by simply switching the On option to Off within the Logs section of your CP.
