An access log features a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your website. The list is thorough, so in case you have a webpage with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log normally contains 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 hottest files on your website. The log, which is also often referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web data that you normally get with a hosting account, not a substitute. An example why you could need this type of a log is if you want to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you don't want to use the conventional graphs and tables that come with the server-generated site stats.

Access Log Manager in Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be really simple if you get a hosting from our company. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, included with all the accounts, features a section on different logs which is where you will find the access logs as well. When you navigate there, you will see a list of all the domains hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform will start creating an access log for each of them as early as you click on the On button, which you'll see on the right. If you don't require logs, disabling the option is just as quick and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button inside the same section. All of the logs are downloadable, therefore you can effortlessly save and manage them on your desktop computer or notebook.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your websites inside a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall have the option to enable or disable the generation of access logs with no more than several mouse clicks inside your Hepsia hosting CP. You shall find this feature within the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access once you sign in. All it takes for our system to start producing logs is a single click on the On button you'll see there. The feature can be enabled individually for any site no matter if it uses a domain or a subdomain and you will find a detailed list of all the hosts within that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with a click and you can then look at it manually or use some software on your laptop or computer. The log generation could be disabled by simply changing the On option to Off inside the Logs section of your CP.
