An access log includes a record of all of the files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your website. The list is comprehensive, so if you have a page with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log normally contains the date, the OS, the web browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most popular files on your website. The log, which is also frequently called "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics that you normally get with a hosting account, not an alternative. An illustration why you could need this kind of a log is if you would like to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s performance, but you do not want to use the conventional graphs and tables which come with the server-generated website stats.

Access Log Manager in Web Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be exceptionally simple if you acquire a web hosting from us. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which comes 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 domain names hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform will start creating an access log for each of them the instant you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you no longer need logs, disabling the option is just as quick and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button within the same exact section. All of the logs are downloadable, so you can conveniently save and manage them on your PC or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll have the option to enable or deactivate the generation of access logs with only several clicks from your Hepsia hosting CP. You will find this function inside the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access once you sign in. All it takes for our system to start creating logs is one click on the On button you'll see there. The function can be triggered individually for any site regardless if it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you'll find a detailed list of all the hosts inside that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with a click and you can then see it manually or use some software on your personal computer. The log generation could be deactivated by simply changing the On option to Off in the Logs section of your CP.
