An access log features a record of all of the files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your site. The list is detailed, so if you have a web page with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log normally features the date, the OS, the Internet browser and the IP address for every single file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most well liked files on your Internet site. The log, which is also frequently called "raw data", is an addition to the web stats you commonly get with a hosting account, not an alternative. A good example why you may need such a log is if you intend to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s general performance, but you don't want to use the standard graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web stats.

Access Log Manager in Website Hosting

If you obtain a website hosting from us, you shall be able to choose if access logs should be produced and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You can enable this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, included with all shared accounts. Every single domain you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can conveniently enable or disable the generation of access logs individually for every website that you have. You may save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link that you'll see in the same section of the Control Panel. The link will be available even after you deactivate the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data collected by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it will not take more than a couple of clicks to activate the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The function can be enabled through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this could be done individually for each domain or subdomain that you have in your account. After you log in and visit the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you will find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each of them. A single click will trigger the log generation and a second one shall deactivate it, so you can control this feature with great comfort. A Download link in the same section will allow you to save the gathered content as a text file, that you can then use on your computer. Even if the logs are deactivated, you will still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
