An access log includes a record of all of the files which have been requested by the visitors while exploring your Internet site. The list is detailed, so when you have a page with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically features the date, the OS, the browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most popular files on your website. The log, that's also typically referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web data you commonly get with a hosting account, not a replacement. One example why you could need this kind 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 conventional graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web statistics.

Access Log Manager in Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be really simple if you buy a hosting from our company. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all of the accounts, features a section dedicated to different logs which is where you shall find the access logs too. When you navigate there, you shall see a list of all the domain names hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform will start producing an access log for any of them as soon as you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you don't require logs, disabling the option is just as fast and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button within the same section. All the logs are downloadable, so you can comfortably save and manage them on your desktop computer or notebook.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your websites within a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will have the option to enable or disable the generation of access logs with just a couple of clicks within 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 producing logs is a click on the On button which you will see there. The feature can be triggered independently for any site no matter if it uses a domain name 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 only a click and you could then look at it manually or use some software on your computer. The log generation may be disabled by simply changing the On option to Off inside the Logs section of your Control Panel.
