An access log features a record of all of the files that have been requested by the visitors while browsing your Internet site. The list is thorough, so in case you have a webpage with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log normally features the date, the OS, the web browser and the IP address for every single file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the most well liked files on your Internet site. The log, that is also often referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics which you normally get with a hosting account, not a replacement. An illustration why you may require this kind of a log is if you wish 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 statistics.

Access Log Manager in Website Hosting

Our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel features a section dedicated to various logs and the access logs are one of them. As you sign in to your website hosting account and navigate to this section, you will find a list of all the domain names and subdomains which you have. All it takes to permit the generation of access logs is to click on a button that will be available next to each domain/subdomain. When the option is active, you shall see a download link and also the file size so far, so you'll be able to save the file to your personal computer and view it or process it with some app. Enabling or disabling the logs becomes effective immediately, so if you don't need one, you may stop it with only a mouse click from the same section of the CP. You shall still have the ability to access the already generated content by simply clicking on the Download link.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our sophisticated website hosting platform will generate access logs for any website hosted within a semi-dedicated server account, provided that this function is enabled. All domain names and subdomains that you have will be listed in the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which we provide with all of the accounts, so if you'd like our system to start creating logs for any of them, you should simply click on the small 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 whenever you want by following the very same steps.

An existing log file may be downloaded even after the feature has been deactivated, so you'll still be able to view the data that's already been generated.
