An access log features a record of all the files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your website. The list is comprehensive, so if you have a web page with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log typically includes the date, the Operating System, the browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the most well liked files on your Internet site. The log, which is also often called "raw data", is an addition to the web data you typically get with a hosting account, not a substitute. An example why you may require this kind of a log is if you would like to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you do not want to use the typical graphs and tables which come with the server-generated site statistics.

Access Log Manager in Shared Website Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be really easy when you purchase a shared website hosting from us. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which comes with all the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs and that is where you will find the access logs as well. As soon as you go 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 creating an access log for each of them when you click on the On button, which you'll 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 within the same exact section. All of the logs are downloadable, so you can easily save and manage them on your PC or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will have the option to trigger or disable the generation of access logs with just a couple of clicks from your Hepsia hosting CP. You'll find this feature within the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access when you sign in. All it takes for our system to start creating logs is a single click on the On button that you will see there. The function can be activated independently for any site regardless of whether it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you will find a full list of all the hosts inside that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with only a click and you can then look at it manually or use some software on your computer. The log generation could be stopped by simply switching the On option to Off in the Logs section of your Control Panel.
