An access log contains a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while exploring your website. The list is comprehensive, so in case you have a webpage with two embedded images, for example, 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 web browser and the IP address for every single file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the most popular files on your Internet site. The log, that is also frequently called "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics you normally get with a hosting account, not a replacement. One example why you may need this sort of a log is if you want to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s performance, but you don't want to use the typical graphs and tables which come with the server-generated site stats.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be very simple when you get a cloud website hosting from us. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all of the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs and this is where you'll find the access logs too. As you navigate there, you'll see a list of all the domain names hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform shall start producing an access log for each of them as early 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 carried out by clicking on the Off button within the very same section. All of the logs are downloadable, which means that you can effortlessly save and manage them on your PC or notebook.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it shall not take more than a few mouse clicks to permit the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The feature may be enabled through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this can be done individually for every single domain name or subdomain which you have in your account. As soon as you log in and go to the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you'll find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each one. A single click shall enable 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 enable you to save the generated content as a text file, which you may then use on your laptop or computer. Whether or not the logs are disabled, you'll still be able to download the data that has been previously generated.
