An access log contains 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 page with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log normally features the date, the Operating System, the Internet browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the hottest files on your site. The log, that is also commonly called "raw data", is an addition to the web stats that you typically get with a hosting account, not an alternative. An example why you could need this sort of a log is if you intend to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you do not want to use the standard graphs and tables which come with the server-generated web statistics.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

When you obtain a cloud hosting from us, you will be able to decide if access logs should be generated and for which domains or subdomains in your account this should be done. You could enable this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, incorporated with all shared accounts. Every domain name you host or subdomain you set up will be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can quickly trigger or disable the generation of access logs individually for every website that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your personal computer by clicking on the Download link that you will see inside the same exact section of the CP. The link shall be available even after you disable the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data compiled by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our state-of-the-art web hosting platform shall create access logs for each and every website hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this feature is permitted. All domain names and subdomains that you have shall be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, that we offer with all the accounts, so if you'd like our system to start creating logs for each of them, you should just click on the little button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You'll be able to deactivate this function anytime by following exactly the same steps. You can find a Download link for each and every log within the same section of the CP, so you can easily save the content generated by our system in .txt format with only a mouse click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the option has been deactivated, so you'll still be able to see the data which has already been generated.
