An access log includes a record of all the files that have been requested by the visitors while browsing your website. The list is comprehensive, so in case you have a webpage with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log normally contains the date, the Operating System, the browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the most well liked files on your Internet site. The log, which is also frequently referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web stats that you usually get with a hosting account, not an alternative. One example why you may require this kind of a log is if you would like to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you do not want to use the standard graphs and tables which come with the server-generated site stats.

Access Log Manager in Web Hosting

When you order a web hosting from our company, you will be able to determine if access logs have to be created and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You could enable this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, integrated with all shared accounts. Any domain you host or subdomain you set up will be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each of them, so you can quickly enable or deactivate the generation of access logs independently for every site that you have. You could save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link you'll see within the exact same section of the CP. The link will be available even if you disable the log generation, so you will still have access to the data compiled by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it shall not take more than a few mouse clicks to permit the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The function could be activated via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this may be done individually for every single domain or subdomain which you have inside your account. Whenever you log in and visit the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you will discover a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each of them. One click shall activate the log generation and a second one shall disable it, so you can control this function with great simplicity. A Download link within the same section will allow you to save the created content as a text file, which you could then use on your personal computer. Even when the logs are deactivated, you shall still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
