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 page with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log typically contains the date, the Operating System, the browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the most well liked files on your site. The log, which is also frequently named "raw data", is an addition to the web data which you typically get with a hosting account, not a substitute. An example why you could need this type of a log is if you would like to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you don't want to use the regular graphs and tables which come with the server-generated website statistics.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be really easy if you purchase a shared hosting from our company. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which comes with all of the accounts, features a section dedicated to different logs and that is where you will find the access logs as well. As you navigate there, you'll see a list of all the domain names hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform will 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 simple and can be done by clicking on the Off button within the very same section. All the logs are downloadable, which means that you can easily save and manage them on your desktop computer or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it shall not take more than several mouse clicks to activate the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The feature may be enabled through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this can be done separately for each and every domain name or subdomain that you have in your account. When you log in and look at the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you'll find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each of them. A single click shall enable the log generation and another one will disable it, so you can control this function with great ease. A Download link inside the same section will enable you to save the gathered content as a text file, which you may then use on your notebook or computer. Even when the logs are disabled, you shall still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
