An access log includes a record of all the files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your site. The list is comprehensive, so when you have a page with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log usually includes the date, the Operating System, the Internet browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most popular files on your website. The log, that's also frequently named "raw data", is an addition to the web stats which you typically get with a hosting account, not a replacement. An example why you may require this kind of a log is if you want to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s performance, but you don't want to use the conventional graphs and tables which come with the server-generated site stats.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting

Our custom Hepsia Control Panel has a section focused on various logs and the access logs are one of them. As soon as you sign in to your cloud web hosting account and visit this section, you will find a list of all the domain names and subdomains that you have. All it takes to permit the generation of access logs is to click on a button that'll be available next to each domain/subdomain. When the option is active, you will see a download link along with the file size so far, so you'll be able to save the file to your PC and look at it or process it with some app. Enabling or disabling the logs takes effect instantly, so if you don't require one, you could stop it with a mouse click from the same exact section of the CP. You'll still be able to access the already generated content by simply clicking on the Download link.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it won't take more than several clicks to trigger the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The function can be permitted via the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this can be done independently for each and every domain name or subdomain which you have inside your account. As soon as you log in and visit the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you'll find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to all of them. One click will trigger the log generation and a second one shall disable it, so you can control this feature with great ease. A Download link inside the same section will permit you to save the gathered content as a text file, that you may then use on your PC. Even when the logs are deactivated, you shall still be able to download the data that has been previously generated.
