An access log features a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your website. The list is thorough, so when you have a webpage with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log normally contains the date, the Operating System, the Internet browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the hottest files on your website. The log, which is also often called "raw data", is an addition to the web data which you commonly get with a hosting account, not an alternative. A good example why you may need this kind of a log is if you wish to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s general performance, but you don't want to use the regular graphs and tables which come with the server-generated web stats.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be exceptionally simple when you acquire a shared hosting from our company. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all of the accounts, features a section dedicated to different logs which is where you'll find the access logs too. As soon as you navigate there, you'll see a list of all the domains hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform will start creating an access log for any of them when you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you no longer require logs, disabling the option is just as easy and can be done by clicking on the Off button in the very same section. All the logs are downloadable, so you can conveniently save and manage them on your desktop PC or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall have the option to trigger or disable the generation of access logs with just several clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will find this function within the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access as soon as you sign in. All it takes for our system to start producing logs is a single click on the On button that you will see there. The function can be enabled independently for any website no matter if it uses a domain or a subdomain and you shall find a detailed list of all the hosts within that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with a click and you may then see it manually or use some software on your personal computer. The log generation may be stopped by simply switching the On option to Off within the Logs section of your CP.
