An access log features a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your Internet site. The list is thorough, so in case you have a web page with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log usually features the date, the OS, the Internet browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most popular files on your Internet site. The log, that is also frequently named "raw data", is an addition to the web stats you commonly get with a hosting account, not an alternative. An example why you may require this type of a log is if you wish to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s performance, but you don't want to use the standard graphs and tables that come with the server-generated site stats.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be very simple if you acquire a cloud website hosting from our company. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, included with all of the accounts, features a section on different logs which is where you shall find the access logs as well. 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 custom made cloud hosting platform shall start producing an access log for any of them as early as you click on the On button, which you'll see on the right. If you don't need logs, disabling the option is just as quick and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button within the same exact section. All the logs are downloadable, which means that you can comfortably save and manage them on your desktop computer or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your websites inside a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will have the option to trigger or deactivate the generation of access logs with only several mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will find this function within the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access after you sign in. All it takes for our system to start generating logs is a click on the On button you'll see there. The feature can be activated separately for any Internet site no matter if it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you shall find a detailed list of all the hosts in that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with a click and you can then look at it manually or use some software on your computer. The log generation may be disabled by simply switching the On option to Off in the Logs section of your Control Panel.
