An access log contains a record of all of the files that have been requested by the visitors while browsing your Internet site. The list is comprehensive, so in case you have a webpage with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log normally features the date, the OS, the web browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the most popular files on your Internet site. The log, which is also often named "raw data", is an addition to the web stats that you typically get with a hosting account, not a replacement. A good example why you may need this kind of a log is if you want 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 typical graphs and tables which come with the server-generated web statistics.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

If you obtain a shared hosting from our company, you shall be able to choose if access logs should be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You may enable this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, included with all shared accounts. Each and every domain you host or subdomain you set up shall be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to every one of them, so you can effortlessly activate or disable the generation of access logs separately for every single site that you have. You can save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link that you shall see within the very same section of the Control Panel. The link shall be available even if you stop the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data collected by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

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