An access log includes a record of all of the files that have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your Internet site. The list is detailed, so when you have a webpage with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall 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 more complete picture about the hottest files on your website. The log, that's also typically referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web data you usually get with a hosting account, not an alternative. A good example why you might need this type of a log is if you intend to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you don't want to use the regular graphs and tables that come with the server-generated website statistics.

Access Log Manager in Shared Website Hosting

Our custom Hepsia CP includes a section focused on various logs and the access logs are one of them. Once you sign in to your shared website hosting account and visit this section, you will find a list of all the domains and subdomains which you have. All it takes to allow the generation of access logs is to click on a button which will be available next to each domain/subdomain. In case the option is active, you shall see a download link and also the file size so far, so you will be able to save the file to your PC and examine it or process it with some program. Enabling or disabling the logs becomes effective right away, so if you don't need one, you may stop it with a mouse click from the same section of the Control Panel. You shall still have the ability to access the already developed content by simply clicking the Download link.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it won't take more than several mouse clicks to permit the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The function may be activated from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this can be done individually for every single domain or subdomain you have within your account. Whenever you log in and look at the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you will see a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each one. A single click shall trigger the log generation and a second one will disable it, so you can control this feature with great convenience. A Download link within the same section will permit you to save the generated content as a text file, which you may then use on your computer. Even if the logs are deactivated, you'll still be able to download the data that has been previously generated.
