An access log includes a record of all the files that have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your site. The list is detailed, so when you have a web page with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log normally contains the date, the OS, the browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the hottest files on your website. The log, which is also typically named "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics which you typically get with a hosting account, not a substitute. One example why you could need this type of a log is if you wish to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s general performance, but you don't want to use the standard graphs and tables which come with the server-generated website statistics.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

When you acquire a cloud hosting from us, you shall be able to determine if access logs should be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You could enable this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, included with all shared accounts. Each domain name you host or subdomain you create shall be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each of them, so you can conveniently trigger or disable the generation of access logs individually for every single website that you have. You can save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link you'll see in the same section of the Control Panel. The link shall be available even after you disable the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data compiled by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our leading-edge website hosting platform shall create access logs for each site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, provided that this feature is permitted. All domain names and subdomains that you have will be listed inside the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, 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 compact button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You could deactivate this function at any time by following the exact same steps. You'll find a Download link for each and every log inside the same exact section of the CP, so you can easily save the content generated by our system in .txt format with simply a click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the feature has been deactivated, so you will still be able to see the data which has already been generated.
