An access log features a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your Internet site. The list is detailed, so in case you have a page with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically includes 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 hottest files on your Internet site. The log, which is also typically called "raw data", is an addition to the web stats you normally get with a hosting account, not an alternative. An illustration why you might need this type 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 that come with the server-generated web statistics.

Access Log Manager in Website Hosting

If you choose one of our website hosting solutions, you’ll receive thorough access logs for all your sites. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should check out the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a complete list of the domain names and subdomains that you've added or created within the hosting account. You will only have to click on the On button, that's found on the right-hand side of each hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs straight away. To stop this feature, you will have to follow the same exact steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains could be handled independently and anytime. You can find a download link inside the Logs section of the CP for every log created by our system, so you're able to save the file to your desktop or notebook and view it or use it with some log processing software.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it will not take more than several mouse clicks to trigger the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The feature can be enabled via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this may be done independently for each domain name or subdomain which you have inside your account. Whenever you log in and look at the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you'll find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to all of them. A single click shall trigger the log generation and another one will deactivate it, so you can control this function with great comfort. A Download link in the same section will allow you to save the created content as a text file, that you may then use on your laptop or computer. Even when the logs are disabled, you'll still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
