An access log features a record of all files which have been requested by the visitors while exploring your Internet site. The list is comprehensive, so when you have a webpage with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log usually contains the date, the OS, the web 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 website. The log, that is also commonly called "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics which you usually get with a hosting account, not a replacement. One example why you may require this sort of a log is if you want to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you don't want to use the regular graphs and tables which come with the server-generated web stats.

Access Log Manager in Website Hosting

Our in-house built Hepsia CP includes a section dedicated to various logs and the access logs are among them. As you sign in to your website hosting account and take a look at this section, you'll find a list of all the domain names and subdomains that you have. All it takes to enable the generation of access logs is to press a button that will be available next to every single domain/subdomain. If the option is active, you will see a download link and also 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 application. Enabling or disabling the logs takes effect instantaneously, so if you don't require one, you can stop it with only a mouse click from the same section of the CP. You will still have the ability to access the already created content by simply clicking the Download link.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it will not take more than a few mouse clicks to enable the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The function may be enabled via the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and this could be done individually for each and every domain name or subdomain that you have within your account. After you log in and check out 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 all of them. One click shall activate the log generation and another one shall disable it, so you can control this feature with great convenience. A Download link inside the same section will permit you to save the generated content as a text file, which you may then use on your notebook or computer. Whether or not the logs are deactivated, you'll still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
