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

Access Log Manager in Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be extremely easy if you get a hosting from our company. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which comes with all the accounts, features a section on different logs and this is where you will find the access logs too. As soon as you go there, you will see a list of all the domains hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform shall start creating an access log for any of them the instant 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 easy and can be done by clicking on the Off button inside the exact same section. All the logs are downloadable, therefore you can easily save and manage them on your PC or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

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