An access log includes a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your Internet site. The list is thorough, so when you have a web page with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log usually includes 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 hottest files on your website. The log, which is also frequently referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics you typically get with a hosting account, not a substitute. One example why you may need this kind of a log is if you would like to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s performance, but you do not want to use the regular graphs and tables which come with the server-generated site stats.

Access Log Manager in Web Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be really easy when you buy a web hosting from us. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, supplied with all of the accounts, features a section on different logs and that is where you'll find the access logs too. As you go there, you will see a list of all the domain names hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform will start generating an access log for each of them as early as you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you no longer need logs, disabling the option is just as fast and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button inside the same exact section. All of the logs are downloadable, which means that you can easily save and manage them on your desktop computer or notebook.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it won't take more than a few clicks to enable the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The function can be activated from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this could be done individually for each domain name or subdomain you have within your account. Once you log in and navigate to the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you will find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to all of them. A single click shall trigger the log generation and another one will deactivate it, so you can control this function with great ease. A Download link within the same section will permit you to save the created content as a text file, which you can then use on your computer system. Even when the logs are disabled, you'll still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
