An access log contains a record of all the files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your site. The list is thorough, so when you have a web page with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will 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 single file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the most popular files on your site. The log, that's also typically referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web data which you commonly get with a hosting account, not an alternative. An example why you may require this kind 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 typical graphs and tables which come with the server-generated site stats.

Access Log Manager in Hosting

When you order a hosting from us, you shall be able to determine if access logs have to be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You could activate this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts. Every single domain you host or subdomain you set up will be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to every one of them, so you can quickly activate or disable the generation of access logs individually for each website that you have. You can save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link that you'll see in the same exact section of the Control Panel. The link is available even if you deactivate the log generation, so you will still have access to the data gathered by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

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