An access log features a record of all of the files which have been requested by the visitors while browsing your Internet site. The list is thorough, so when you have a webpage with 2 embedded images, for instance, 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 browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the most well liked files on your site. The log, that is also often referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web stats you normally get with a hosting account, not an alternative. A good example why you may need this type of a log is if you want to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you don't want to use the standard graphs and tables which come with the server-generated web stats.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting

Our custom Hepsia Control Panel has a section dedicated to various logs and the access logs are among them. When you sign in to your cloud web hosting account and take a look at this section, you shall find a list of all the domains and subdomains which you have. All it takes to allow the generation of access logs is to click on a button that will be available next to every single domain/subdomain. In case the option is enabled, you will see a download link along with the file size so far, so you will be able to save the file to your personal computer and view it or process it with some program. Enabling or disabling the logs becomes effective immediately, so if you no longer require one, you can stop it with simply a mouse click from the exact same section of the CP. You will still be able to access the already generated content by clicking on the Download link.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it will not take more than several mouse clicks to enable the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The feature may be enabled via the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this could be done separately for each and every domain or subdomain that you have in your account. Once you log in and go to the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you will discover a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each of them. A single click shall trigger the log generation and a second one will deactivate it, so you can control this feature with great ease. A Download link inside the same section will enable you to save the gathered content as a text file, that you may then use on your computer. Even if the logs are deactivated, you shall still be able to download the data that has been previously generated.
