An access log contains a record of all the files that have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your site. The list is detailed, so if you have a web page with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not just 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 well liked files on your website. The log, that's also commonly called "raw data", is an addition to the web data that you commonly get with a hosting account, not a replacement. One example why you may need this type of a log is if you would like to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you don't want to use the conventional graphs and tables that come with the server-generated site stats.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be really easy if you buy a shared hosting from us. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all the accounts, has a section on different logs which is where you shall find the access logs as well. As you navigate there, you'll see a list of all the domain names hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform shall start creating an access log for any of them as early as you click on the On button, that you will see on the right. If you no longer need logs, disabling the option is just as simple and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button in the same exact section. All of the logs are downloadable, so you can comfortably save and manage them on your desktop computer or notebook.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it shall not take more than several clicks to permit the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The function can be enabled through the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and this can be done separately for every single domain name or subdomain which you have within your account. Once you log in and navigate to the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you will see a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each of them. One click will enable the log generation and a second one shall disable it, so you can control this feature with great efficiency. A Download link within the same section will allow you to save the generated content as a text file, which you can then use on your laptop or computer. Whether or not the logs are disabled, you shall still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
