An access log features a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while exploring your website. The list is comprehensive, so if you have a web page with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall 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 each file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most popular files on your site. The log, that is also often referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web data you typically get with a hosting account, not a substitute. A good example why you may require this sort of a log is if you intend to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you don't want to use the regular graphs and tables that come with the server-generated site stats.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

If you get a cloud hosting from our company, you shall be able to determine if access logs must be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You can activate this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, included with all shared accounts. Each domain name you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to every one of them, so you can easily enable or deactivate the generation of access logs individually for every single site that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your personal computer by clicking on the Download link you'll see inside the same section of the CP. The link will be available even if you stop the log generation, so you will still have access to the data gathered by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your websites inside a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll have the option to enable or disable the generation of access logs with no more than a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting CP. You'll find this function in the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access after you sign in. All it takes for our system to start generating logs is one click on the On button that you will see there. The feature can be triggered separately for any site no matter if it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you'll find the complete list of all the hosts inside that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with a click and you may then view it manually or use some software on your personal computer. The log generation may be stopped by simply switching the On option to Off inside the Logs section of your CP.
