An access log contains a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your website. The list is detailed, so in case you have a webpage with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically features the date, the Operating System, the web browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the hottest files on your Internet site. The log, that's also frequently called "raw data", is an addition to the web data that you usually get with a hosting account, not an alternative. An illustration why you might need this kind of a log is if you would like to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you do not want to use the regular graphs and tables which come with the server-generated web statistics.
Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs will be extremely simple if you acquire a shared hosting from us. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, supplied with all of the accounts, features a section on different logs which is where you shall find the access logs as well. Once you go there, you'll see a list of all the domains hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform shall start generating an access log for any of them when 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 easy and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button within the same exact section. All the logs are downloadable, so you can conveniently 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 shall not take more than several mouse clicks to trigger the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The function may be enabled from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this could be done separately for each and every domain or subdomain you have in your account. Whenever you log in and visit the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you will see a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to every one of them. A single click shall trigger the log generation and a second one shall deactivate it, so you can control this feature with great convenience. A Download link inside the same section will enable you to save the compiled content as a text file, that you could then use on your computer system. Even if the logs are deactivated, you shall still be able to download the data that has been previously generated.
